Northern Iowa at Southern Illinois, 1 p.m. on ESPN+
The No. 6 Panthers and No. 9 Salukis both have a good chance to make the 16-team playoff, but with just six at-large bids, a second defeat for these one-loss teams may be a nail in their proverbial coffins. This game will be a great battle of offense (Southern Illinois) versus defense (Northern Iowa).

Valparaiso vs Butler Game preview
Valpo will kick off its season on Saturday after having to wait until the spring due to COVID-19. The Crusaders are going to be in their second season under head coach Landon Fox. They finished with a 1-11 (1-7 Pioneer) record in 2019, including an 0-6 record on the road.
The Crusaders have struggled in their rivalry with Butler, going 27-51 all-time. They have won two of the last three meetings, though. Valpo has not won a season opener since 2007, which can partly be attributed to a tough schedule. It dropped a 35-6 final against Drake to open the 2019 season
The Spiders have the quarterback in Joe Mancuso, who only seems like he’s back for his 15th season. He’s a big passer who might not have lit it up two ears ago, but he he can run – leading the team with 647 yards and ten scores – and in a year with so much uncertainly, he should provide stability.

Once signed up for ESPN+, you can watch UIW vs McNeese live on the ESPN app on your Roku, Roku TV, Amazon Fire TV or Fire Stick, Apple TV, Chromecast, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, iPhone, Android phone, iPad or Android tablet.
The only way to get a full football experience is to have a whole litany of channels from your TV provider.

For cord-cutters who want to save some
money, however, football streaming options get a bit more complicated. Your
best bet is to subscribe to a live TV streaming service but the sheer number of
channels that carry live games — local CBS, NBC and Fox channels, as well as the
national feeds of FCS Network and ESPN — means you’ll either have to get a
relatively expensive service or make a compromise and miss some games every
week. (Editors’ note: CNET and CBS are both owned by Viacom CBS.)

Best for everything: YouTube TV
Last year our streaming service pick for Soccer fans was PlayStation
Vue at $55 a month, but Sony shut down its service earlier this year.
That leaves cord-cutters with two more expensive options.
Want RedZone for following your fantasy team? That’s available on
either service as part of an add-on for an extra $11 per month.
YouTube TV users can add the Sports Plus add-on by clicking on
your profile and going to Settings, then the Membership tab.
FuboTV users can go into My Profile and choose Manage Add-ons
for its Sports Plus offering.
Both YouTube TV and FuboTV’s Family plan allow for three
simultaneous streams, with YouTube offering unlimited cloud DVR
and FuboTV offering 500 hours of storage. The two services are
widely available too, with apps on iOS and Android, the web and on
TVs through Roku, Chromecast, Android TV, Apple TV and Fire
TV.The budget alternative for SOCCER fans in big cities:
Those looking to save some cash might want to check out Sling Blue for $30 a
month. While it lacks ESPN, meaning you’ll miss out on Monday Night Football,
in select markets you’ll be able to get Fox and NBC. The catch is that those
markets are mainly in big cities, so if you live outside one of those areas, Sling
Blue might not be for you.
The Soccer and Dish agreement during Week 10 restored the NFL Network to the
Sling Blue package while allowing sports fans to add RedZone through the
company’s $10 per month Sports Extra add-on.
Budget alternatives: CBS All Access, Locast or
an antennaThere are some apps that offer CBS’ slate of Sunday AFC games live, including
CBS All Access for $6 per month. Depending on where you live, however, your
local CBS station (and those NFL games) might not be available. CBS offers live
streaming services in many markets; you can check for yourself if your area has
live CBS streaming here.
Locast, meanwhile, is 100% free. It’s currently offered in only 23 cities, however,
and not all will have CBS, Fox and NBC. And as we mentioned above, an over-
the-air antenna connected to your TV provides another free option, no streaming
required, as long as you have good reception.

streaming schedule. Most games will be available on the NFL Network, Fox,

or YouTube TV or use the Yahoo Sports app.
