Watch NCAA football live with a digital HDTV antenna



If you’re cutting the cord to your cable company, you’re not alone; in fact, you are in luck. You can still watch the NFL on TV with an affordable indoor antenna, which pulls in local over-the-air HDYC channels such as CBS, NBC, ABC, Fox, PBS, Univision and more. Here’s the kicker: There’s no monthly charge.

Anyone living in partially blocked-off area (those near mountains or first-floor apartments), a digital TV antenna may not pick up a good signal — or any signal at all. But for many homes, a digital TV antenna provides a seriously inexpensive way to watch college football without paying a cable company. Indoor TV antennas can also provide some much-needed TV backup if a storm knocks out your cable (or your cable company gets in a squabble with a network).

This amplified digital antenna can receive hundreds of HD TV channels, including ABC, CBS, NBC, PBS, FOX, Univision and can filter out cellular and FM signals. It received signals 360 degrees and delivers a high-quality picture in 4K, UHD and 1080 HDTV, top-tier sound and features a 16-foot digital coax cable. This Amazon best selling antenna is currently on sale for $20, reduced from $27.

The 2023 NCAA college football season: Championship week

Important dates for the 2023 college football season:

  • The 13-week 2023 college football season runs from Aug. 27 through Dec. 9.
  • Two semifinal games, the Rose Bowl Game and the Allstate Sugar Bowl, are scheduled for New Year’s Day (Monday, January 1, 2024).
  • The College Football Playoff National Championship is scheduled for Monday, January 8, 2024 at NRG Stadium in Houston, Texas.

It’s Championship Week in NCAA college football. Week 13 of the 2023 NCAA college football season marked the end of the line for top teams like Ohio State and teams with high hopes like UCLA, USC and Oregon State. Week 14 brought eight championship games, with OSO notably absent from the schedule.

The biggest story of the 2023 NCAA college football season was the Colorado Buffaloes, their superstar new head coach Deion Sanders (aka “Coach Prime“) making headlines before his team ever played a snap. For all of Prime’s bravado, and the team’s strong 3-0 start, the Buffaloes season ended with a whimper (and the loss of two top-tier quarterback prospects).  The Buffaloes’ 4-8 record doesn’t bode well, but Prime’s first season in Colorado will be seen as an undeniable success (the Buffaloes were 1-11 in 2022), its ticket sales, school profile and recruiting on the rise.

As the 2023 NCAA college football regular season comes to a close, so does the Pac-12 as we know it. In July 2022, UCLA and USC finally agreed on something. The frenemy rivals would both leave the Pac-12 in favor of the Big Ten in 2024. This summer, Colorado announced it would return to the Big 12. Since then, Arizona, Arizona State and Utah announced an exodus from the Pac-12 to the Big-12 at the end of the 2023 season. University of Washington and University of Oregon are also ditching the Pac-12 for the Big 10. Cal Berkeley and Stanford later announced they’d join the ACC, leaving OSU and WSU remaining. The Pac-2 seems unlikely, but what will become of the former Pac-12 remains to be seen.
