Watch Iowa take on Kentucky in the Music City Bowl live without cable on ABC on 12/31/22. Our top pick for watching the noon kickoff is fuboTV.
You can live stream Iowa Hawkeyes football without cable on a host of different devices including Roku, Amazon Fire TV, Samsung Smart TV, and more.
My top pick for Hawkeyes fans is fuboTV. With a growing lineup of 4K programming, KGAN CBS 2 Cedar Rapids for watching the Chiefs, and Big Ten Network in the base package, fuboTV has a lot to offer Iowa sports fans. Hulu, YouTube TV, and DIRECTV STREAM are also good options for Hawkeye fans, and offer similar coverage to fuboTV, albeit with different packages and pricing.

Our top picks for Hawkeyes football live stream
Hulu + Live TV
I’ve enjoyed watching college football on Hulu. I like the interface and the service has all the channels you need to live stream the Hawkeyes and Big Ten Football. Big Ten Network is offered in the base package and the ESPN+ bundle gets NCAAF fans even more games.

Sling Orange or Blue, as stand alone services, offer value as budget picks, but they are missing key channels for Iowa football. For example, Sling TV users in Iowa can’t get FOX or ABC without an air antenna. Nevertheless, the availability of ESPN, FS1, and Big Ten Network offers some coverage.
