How to Watch College Football on Your Phone

College football has never been bigger, and now thanks to smartphones, you can keep tabs on your team even when you're not at home. Unfortunately, most of these solutions require you to have a cable subscription, although there are a few that don't. Here are your options.

Sling TV

One of the few ways to watch college football without having a cable subscription is with Sling TV (Android, iOS). For $25 bucks a month, you get access to all the major national networks and ESPN — no cable required.

Specific Channel Apps

Those with cable subscriptions can download apps such as WatchESPN (Android, iOS), CBS Sports (Android, iOS), NBC Sports (Android, iOS) and Fox Sports Go (Android, iOS), so you can stream the same broadcasts you'd get at home on your phone. After downloading and installing the apps, all you need to do is log in with information provided by your cable company.

Conference Apps

A handful of specific NCAA conferences also run their own apps, so not only can you follow your team, but you can also keep up with how all your rivals are doing. Conferences with their own dedicated apps include the Pac-12 (Android, iOS), the Big Ten (Android, iOS) and the ACC (Android, iOS). Sorry, SEC fans — you're currently out of luck.
