How to Watch Northwestern Football Live Without Cable in 2022

Written by John O'Connor

Last updated on

The Northwestern Wildcats are a college football team that plays in the Big Ten’s West Division. The Wildcats had a tough season in 2021, going 1-8 in conference play. However, the team is always well coached by Pat Fitzgerald and his staff, so there is reason to hope that the fans in Evanston will see a better product on the field for the 2022 season.

You can watch Northwestern football games live without cable on several live TV streaming services, including DIRECTV STREAM, fuboTV, Hulu, and YouTube TV. Our tip pick for Northwestern fans in Chicago is fuboTV. With fuboTV, Wildcat fans get access to every Big Ten football game, but also in-market Chicago pro sports on NBC Sports Chicago and Marquee Sports Network.

How to watch this week’s Northwestern football game

Looking for a specific Northwestern football game? We list the upcoming Northwestern TV schedule, as well as the live TV streaming providers that carry each game, in the easy to use table below.

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

The most important channels for Northwestern football fans

The Big Ten’s TV rights are held by ABC, ESPN, and FOX, which makes it easy to predict where Northwestern Football games will air.

FS1 and Big Ten Network, as properties owned by FOX and the Big Ten respectively, will feature less sought after Big Ten matchups while FOX’s Big Noon Kickoff airs the week’s premier Big Ten game. Important Big Ten matchups will also air on ABC and ESPN, and FOX has the TV rights to broadcast the Big Ten Championship game.

Live streaming Northwestern football: our top picks

fuboTV

fuboTV is a slam dunk for Northwestern football fans. First, the service gets you all the channels you need for watching Big Ten Football, so that base is covered. But as an added bonus, fuboTV carries NBC Sports Chicago and the Marquee Sports Network in its base package.

NBC Sports Chicago airs the White Sox, Bulls, and Blackhawks regular season games for local fans in the Chicago area. The Marquee Sports Network is the home of Cubs baseball.

fuboTV’s benefits don’t stop at MLB, NBA, and NHL games. The platform is rated as our top choice for live streaming Chicago Bears games. Not only is fuboTV the best option for streaming Northwestern games, it is also the best live TV streaming service for Chicago sports.

Hulu + Live TV

Hulu + Live TV gets you all the channels you need to live stream Northwestern Football. We like that Hulu carries the Big Ten Network and NBC Sports Chicago in its base package. Unfortunately, Hulu + Live TV does not currently offer the Marquee Sports Network for Cubs games.

You can stream the Chicago Bears and the NFL, including Monday Night Football, on Hulu.

YouTube TV

Northwestern fans can watch those beautiful purple uniforms run out of the tunnel on YouTube TV, and you may even be able to get the games in 4K. YouTube TV carries the Big Ten Network and NBC Sports Chicago in its base package, but sorry Cubs fans, YouTube TV doesn’t offer Marquee Sports Network programming.

You can stream the Chicago Bears and the NFL, including Monday Night Football, on YouTube TV.
