The BYU Cougars and Utah Utes will travel down to Las Vegas, Nevada to face off for the chance to end their season with a bowl victory. The game kicks off at 3:30 p.m. ET on December 19, and we’re going to show you how you can watch a legal Las Vegas Bowl live stream without cable TV.
BYU Cougars vs Utah Utes Preview
The BYU Cougars had a solid season, ending with a 9-3 overall record. At one point the Cougars were ranked as high as 19th in the country, but back-to-back losses to UCLA and Michigan sent them out of the top 25 where they remain. They get the chance to finish the season strong with a victory of a ranked Utah team is BYU’s main in-state rival. Not only will the win be a great sign of proof that this Cougars team is solid, but it will be great bragging rights heading into the matchup with Utah on its 201t regular season schedule.
The Utah Utes finished the season with a 9-3 overall record as well, but managed to do this in an incredibly competitive Pac-12 Conference. The Utes fan base felt the team was overlooked for a more prestigious bowl game, due to the enticing matchup created by playing their in-state rivals. However, the team did suffer losses to unranked opponents USC, Arizona, and UCLA during the season. Big victories over 13th-ranked Oregon and 23rd-ranked California helped balance these losses and give Utah a final ranking of 20th in the AP Poll. Whether they should have been in a better bowl matchup or not, the BYU vs Utah match up will certainly be an exciting game to watch!
Sign Up for Sling TV To Watch Las Vegas Bowl Live Stream Free
Since the beginning of 2015 Sling TV has rapidly grown as one of the top alternatives to an expensive cable subscription. It was launched this year by Dish Network and its growth can largely be attributed to its offering of a broad range of cable channels including the availability of a sizeable amount of live sporting events.

Sling TV (review) offers a starting package, which features over 20 popular cable channels ranging from HGTV and Food Network to TBS, TNT, ESPN, and ESPN2. Sling TV has an agreement with ESPN that lets subscribers access WatchESPN and ESPN3 by logging on with their Sling TV credentials. This is how you can watch BYU vs Utah live stream, because ABC is included on ESPN3 on the WatchESPN app. Sling TV’s offering is pretty impressive considering the amount of TV shows and sporting events which are available via live stream.
One of the best aspects of Sling TV is its price. The package detailed above costs only $20 per month and can be cancelled at any time if you would like because there is no contract required. Once subscribed you can live stream Sling TV’s package of channels via your computer, tablet, phone, or even directly on your TV with a connect device. Sling TV also introduced add-on packages, which cost $5 per month and make several more channels available around a specific theme. An example is the Sports Network package. For just the $5 more each month you gain access to ESPNU, ESPNEWS, SEC Network, and ESPN Goal Line. For $25 per month you will access to so many TV shows and live sports you will have forgotten all about your cable subscription.
Sling TV currently has a limited-time offer where you can pay in advance for three months of the service and in return receive 50% off a Roku 3 player or a free Roku Streaming Stick. These connected devices will basically pay for themselves at the end of the three months and let you watch bowl games like BYU vs Utah live on your TV.
