How to Watch Bowling Green State University Falcons Football Live Online

Written by John O'Connor

Last updated on

Bowling Green State University’s (BGSU) football team plays in the MAC Conference. BGSU is located off highway 75 in northern Ohio, just south of Toledo and Detroit. Many students at BGSU are also Ohio State football, Cleveland Guardians and Browns fans. You can live stream Bowling Green football games on several different live TV streaming services, however, Hulu + Live TV is the best option, as its ESPN+ bundle allows BGSU fans to watch all the team’s games from one app. If you are like many BGSU fans and also follow a local pro sports team from Detroit, Cleveland, or Cincinnati, we recommend DIRECTV STREAM “Ultimate,” which offers Bally Sports Detroit, Bally Sports Ohio, and Bally Sports Great Lakes, plus CBS Sports Network.

Hulu + Live TV

Best option for watching all BGSU games, including ESPN+ games. WUPW FOX 36 Toledo for Detroit Lions games. WOIO Cleveland CBS 19 for Browns games.

How to watch this week’s BGSU football game

Looking for a specific BGSU football game? We list the BGSU football TV schedule, as well as the live TV streaming services that carry each game, in the easy to use table below. Note that the ESPN+ streaming exclusive games are not listed in this table.

This team does not have a televised game scheduled in the next two weeks.

BGSU football channels

Based on current TV contracts with CBS Sports Network and ESPN, most MAC games, including BGSU games, will air on ESPN, ESPN2, ESPNU, ESPN+, and CBS Sports Network. Early in the season, when BGSU faces an ACC, SECBig 10, or PAC-12 opponent, the game will often appear on that conference’s network, such as Big 10 Network or ACC Network. In the channel comparison table below, I have also included the live TV streaming services that carry Bally Sports Great Lakes, Bally Sports Ohio, and Bally Sports Detroit, the regional sports networks that broadcast local MLBNBA, and NHL action to sports fans in Michigan and Ohio.

Watching BGSU football: our top picks

For the diehard BGSU fans, Hulu + Live TV is the clear winner. The platform integrates ESPN+ programming directly into the app, which gives Falcons fans every BGSU football game on one platform. If your sports interests go beyond MAC football, read on because my pick would be DIRECTV STREAM for many northern Ohio sports fans.


I’ve spent time at BGSU and understand the culture. I know that 9/10 BGSU fans follow not only the Falcons, but also Detroit and Cleveland teams, and Big Ten teams like Ohio State and Michigan. If you also want access to teams like the Detroit Tigers, Guardians, Blue Jackets, and Cavs in addition to BGSU, go with DIRECTV STREAM. The BGSU games that air on ESPN+ won’t be available with DIRECTV, but it’s simple enough to add an ESPN+ subscription if complete BGSU coverage is important to you.


Watch most BGSU football games (no ESPN+) as well as WOIO CBS Channel 19, Cleveland for watching the Browns on Sundays.


Watch BGSU when the games air on ESPN+, estimated at between 4-5 games each season.


Sling, with its lack of major local channels in most markets, is not a complete solution for watching the NFL, and will only get Falcons fans about half of the team’s games. Sling lacks CBS Sports Network, ABC, CBS, FOX, and NBC in most households. Pair Sling with ESPN+ for better coverage.


Watch most BGSU football games (no ESPN+) as well as WOIO CBS Channel 19, Cleveland for watching the Browns on Sundays. YouTube TV has an excellent 4K package and unlimited DVR.
