On Saturday, January 2 at 6:45 p.m. ET, the 23rd annual Alamo Bowl will kick off at the Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas. This year, it will be a showdown between Oregon vs. TCU, the 15th and 11th ranked teams in the league, respectively. Read our guide to learn how to watch the Alamo Bowl live stream online!
The Alamo Bowl will be hosted by ESPN, and broadcast nationally from San Antonio. ESPN will be the only cable channel to host this game. For those who do not have cable, the best way to watch the Alamo Bowl live stream is to use Sling TV, which gives you direct access to ESPN without a cable subscription. We’ll talk more about that later – but first, let’s take a look at the game preview for the 2016 Alamo Bowl.
Oregon Ducks vs. TCU Horned Frogs Preview
With two top-15 teams vying for a chance at Alamo Bowl glory, event organizers are expecting a sell-out crowd of 60,000+ fans. And with Oregon and TCU both bringing explosive power to the table, we’re all in for quite an exciting game, whether we’re there live or watching from home.
The Oregon Ducks ended the regular season at #15 in the league, with an overall record of 9-3 (7-2 in the Pac-12). Lead by Head Coach Mark Helfrich, the Ducks got off to a slow start, but rallied to win their last 6 consecutive games. Their Alamo Bowl appearance this January will mark their 11th straight Bowl appearance. The Ducks won the 2013 Alamo Bowl against Texas, and Oregon fans are hoping for a repeat of that excellent performance.
TCU Horned Frogs
The TCU Horned Frogs ended the season at #11, with an impressive record of 10-2. TCU has never played in the Alamo Bowl, but this game will be their 16th bowl game in the last 18 years, so the Horned Frogs are no strangers to the excitement of an NCAA Bowl game. Coming off an excellent season and heading into their second consecutive bowl appearance, fans of the Horned Frogs are excited to watch their team play in San Antonio.
With two top-15 teams hashing it out in San Antonio next week, the 2016 Alamo Bowl is sure to be a game to remember! Are you ready to watch?
