Watch Wisconsin football live

If you can’t make it to a game, it’s easy to live stream Wisconsin football on several live TV streaming services, including YouTube TV, Hulu, fuboTV, and DIRECTV STREAM. With many similar offerings on the market, the best choice for Badgers fans is the one that allows Wisconsin sports fans to watch their favorite teams in addition to Badgers football. Our top pick for Badger football fans, DIRECTV STREAM “Choice,” allows sports fans in Wisconsin to watch Bucks, Brewers, Badgers, and Packers games from the same platform.

Today’s game

Our software lists the upcoming TV schedule with streaming options below.

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

Important Channels

The Big Ten’s TV contract reserves big games with national championship implications for FOX’s Big Noon Kickoff, as well as ABC and ESPN. Games between unranked teams usually air on FS1 or the Big Ten Network.

Wisconsin football has a winning tradition, and an excellent coach in Paul Chryst, so it is likely the team will appear on the big stage ESPN and FOX games several times this season. FOX has the rights to the Big Ten Championship game in December.

In the table below, I have laid out all of the important Big Ten Football channels and which live TV streaming providers carry each one.

keep an eye on Wisconsin’s QB room

The Badgers added a whopping three transfer portal quarterbacks:

Mordecai, who tore it up last season as SMU’s starter, is expected to start for Wisconsin’s new high-powered spread offense. The UW Badgers under head coach Luke Fickell will be fun to watch.

Top picks

fuboTV carries all of the channels Wisconsin games will appear on this season, has a growing list of 4K college football programming, offers Big Ten Network in the base package, and has a beautiful interface that is easy to use and setup.

fuboTV comes with 1,000 hours of DVR storage and is also a top pick for live streaming Green Bay Packers games.

You can watch Wisconsin football on Hulu + Live TV. The platform carries the channels you need to live stream Big Ten Football and is also a good option for streaming the NFL as well.

With the ESPN+ bundle, sports fans get access to UFC Fight Nights and an extensive lineup of out-of-market MLB and NHL games. The base DVR storage for Hulu + Live TV, at 50 hours, lags behind the competition and we don’t like the interface as much as fuboTV.

Yes, you can get all the channels you need to live stream Wisconsin football on DIRECTV STREAM, but the more expensive “Choice” package will be required. The benefit of DIRECTV STREAM “Choice” for Wisconsin fans is the platform is the only option for live streaming Bally Sports Wisconsin, home of the Brewers and Bucks. If the NBA and MLB is a priority, DIRECTV STREAM might be worth the extra money here.

With the platform’s innovative Stats View and Key Plays features, YouTube TV is a great option for live streaming Wisconsin football. YouTube TV is the best option for sports fans with existing Google accounts as a full Google account is required to use the service.

What stadium does Wisconsin football play in?

The Badgers play at Camp Randall Stadium in Madison, Wisconsin, and if you can make it to a game in person, you’ll be participating in one of college football’s greatest traditions. Wisconsin has played football at Camp Randall Stadium since 1895 and the stadium is known for the student tradition of playing “Jump Around” at the start of every 4th quarter.
