Massachusetts football has hired Don Brown, the Michigan Wolverine’s former defensive coordinator, nicknamed “Dr. Blitz,” for his second stint as head coach of the Minutemen. UMass fans have several options for watching Coach Brown and the Minutemen live without cable, but our top pick is fuboTV’s “Sports Lite” package. Unfortunately for UMASS fans, there isn’t one app to watch all of the Minutemen’s season as many of the games air on Flo Sports, a separate live TV streaming service based in Austin, TX. UMass’ first two games of the 2022 season are on ESPN+ against Tulane and Toledo, both night games on the road.

How to watch this week’s Massachusetts football game
Note: the first two games of the 2022 UMass football season are on ESPN+ against Tulane and Toledo.
Note: this Massachusetts football TV scheduling table only lists televised games. As many UMass games air exclusively on a small streaming platform, Flo Sports, they won’t make this list. Flo Sports has broadcast rights to all of the home UMass football games, but our software doesn’t consider them as televised, so they won’t appear in this table.
Live streaming UMass football: our top picks
In order to watch UMass football home games, a FloSports subscription is required. For a platform to stream the rest of UMass games, and add value as a Boston sports fan, we like fuboTV’s “Sports Lite” package.
fuboTV doesn’t carry ESPN+, but it does offer NBC Sports Boston and NESN in the base package.
Hulu + Live gets you the first two games of 2022 on ESPN+, as well as the rest of the channels you need to watch the Minutemen, but not Flo Sports.
YouTube TV will carry a handful of Minutemen football games this season.
