The Big Ten heads to Europe, with Northwestern vs. Nebraska kicking off the 2022 college football season as part of the Aer Lingus College Football Classic live from Dublin, Ireland.

The game will be a night game in Dublin, with a 5:30 PM local kickoff, but fans in the Central time zone will get an 11:30 AM morning start time on FOX. Our top pick for live streaming the Aer Lingus Football Classic is DIRECTV STREAM, however, there are several options for watching this game because it will be broadcast nationally on FOX affiliates all over the country. We like DIRECTV because it is fast and easy to setup, has all the channels you need to watch the entirety of both Nebraska’s and Northwestern’s 2022 football seasons, and is offering a generous discounted rate for the first two months of football season. Note that DIRECTV STREAM doesn’t include the Big Ten Network in the base package.


Watch ABC, CBS, ESPN, FOX, NBC, and more. Upgrade for FS1, NBC Sports Chicago, and Big Ten Network.

What we’re watching in the aer lingus football classic

The Aer Lingus College Football Classic was originally scheduled for 2021, with Nebraska and Illinois the featured matchup, but due to COVID-19, the game was moved. Northwestern has filled in for Illinois for this year’s game.

Who will start at QB for Nebraska this season? Casey Thompson started 10 games for Texas last season, and came to Nebraska as a transfer. Will he be Scott Frost’s QB of the future? We will be watching closely to see who is under center for the Cornhuskers to start the 2022 season.
