You can watch the No. 5 Texas A&M Aggies vs. the No. 13 North Carolina Tar Heels in the 2021 Orange Bowl on Saturday, January 2nd at 8:00 p.m. ET on ESPN.

The Aggies (8-1) wanted to claim a spot in the College Football Playoff, but their 52-24 loss to Alabama proved too much to overcome and they fell one spot short. North Carolina (8-3) still somehow got in a big bowl game despite Coastal Carolina, Louisiana, and Indiana all probably having a better case, but a 62-26 win over Miami to close the season was the last outing in voter’s minds.

If you can’t watch this game on TV, you have the option to stream the matchup on WatchESPN or the ESPN app from your mobile device. If you don’t have a cable login, you can get a free trial from YouTube TV, Hulu with Live TV, AT&T TV Now, FuboTV, or Sling TV to stream the Orange Bowl this week.

The game is often a little bit delayed on live streams, but usually, it’s only between 30 and 60 seconds behind the TV broadcast. That can impact you if you’re on Twitter during the game or live-betting, but otherwise it’s an easy option.
