Louisville football 2023: What we’re watching
For the 2023 season, we will be watching Jeff Brohm, Louisville’s first-year head coach. Brohm, formerly the coach at Purdue, is a Cardinal alum and was long rumored to be interested in coming back to his alma mater. It will be interesting to see how Coach Brohm’s inaugural season goes at the helm.
Live streaming Louisville football: our top picks
DIRECTV STREAM’s “Choice” package carries ABC, ESPN, ESPN2, the ACC Network, and the regional sports networks (RSN) you need to live stream Louisville basketball during the regular season. Four Louisville games each season are carried by a Bally Sports RSN. As of now, that plan is still in place even with the future of regional sports networks in peril.
The downside with DIRECTV STREAM is the lack of access to ACC Network Extra which hampers the ability to watch regular season ACC basketball. However, as a practical matter, the streaming services that carry the ACC on RSN channels don’t also offer access to ACC Network Extra, so there are gaps in coverage for basketball season no matter which way you go.
fuboTV is a great choice for watching football, both pro and college. The platform does require and upgrade to access ESPNU and offers the RSNs you need to watch Louisville hoops and some Louisville football games.
With YouTube TV’s new 4K Plus price at $4.99 for the first year, the app is a good choice if your streaming device supports 4K streaming.
No ABC in most markets will be a deal breaker for some, and Sling Orange isn’t a great option for watching the NFL, but at a good price Sling Orange + Sports Extra gets Louisville fans ESPN, ESPN2, and the ACCNetwork, plus ACC Network Extra through the ESPN app.
