Six consecutive victories, including wins against USC, TCU and Oklahoma, have vaulted head coach Tom Herman and the Texas Longhorns (6-1) all the way up to No. 6 in the AP Poll. The Longhorns are preparing for their toughest test of the season when they head to Stillwater to take on Mike Gundy and the Oklahoma State Cowboys on Saturday night.
The game is scheduled to start at 8 p.m. ET and will be broadcast nationally on ABC. If you don’t have cable or can’t get to a TV, you can still watch a live stream of the game (or DVR it) on your computer, phone or streaming device by signing up for one of the following cable-free, live-TV streaming services:
In addition to a Netflix-like on-demand streaming library, Hulu also offers a bundle of 50-plus live TV channels, including ABC (live in select markets, but even if it isn’t included in your market, you’ll be able to watch the game on the ESPN digital platforms with your Hulu credentials).
You can sign up for “Hulu with Live TV” right here, and if ABC is live in your market, you can then watch a live stream of the game on your computer via the Hulu website, or on your phone, tablet or streaming device via the Hulu app. If ABC isn’t live in your market, scroll down to the “ESPN Platforms” section to see where you can watch.
If you can’t watch live, “Hulu with Live TV” also comes with 50 hours of Cloud DVR storage (with the ability to upgrade to “Enhanced Cloud DVR,” which gives you 200 hours of DVR space and the ability to fast forward through commercials).
Although ABC isn’t technically part of the Sling TV package, you can sign up for a free 7-day trial of the “Sling Orange” bundle, which includes ESPN3, and you’ll then be able to watch a live stream of the game on the ESPN digital platforms (see next section).
You can watch a live stream of the game on your computer via ESPN.com, or on your phone, tablet or streaming device via the ESPN app. Games on ABC (labeled as ESPN3) can be watched for free without cable if you have a participating internet service provider (ISP), but even if you don’t have a participating ISP, you can still sign use your Hulu or Sling TV (or other cable TV) credentials to sign in and watch the game on the ESPN digital platforms.
Texas barely escaped last week with a narrow 23-17 win against the Baylor Bears. Sophomore quarterback Sam Ehlinger sustained a shoulder sprain against the Bears, but after careful monitoring this week, Herman and the rest of the coaching staff deemed him able to play.
“We talked about him being very honest with us in terms of his pain because there’s an element to his game that’s different than a lot of quarterbacks. If we’re out there playing cautious and tentative and trying to protect things, I think that plays into the overall effectiveness of him and his game for us.”
Ehlinger has continuously had his status upgraded throughout the week:
Oklahoma State is allowing 493 total yards and 28.4 points per game this season; the Cowboys defense has allowed 443 yards to Iowa State and Kansas State over the past two weeks, both losses. 291.1 yards have come through the air. The Cowboys defeated the Longhorns last season in a low-scoring 13-10 affair; they sealed a win following an Ehlinger interception and game-winning field goal in overtime.
By contrast, the Longhorns defense has been a difference-maker this season. Their eight interceptions rank third in the Big 12 conference, and are tied for 29th nationally.
