It is week one of NCAA football, and the top 25 teams are trying to prove their ranking with a win in their season openers. The University of Oklahoma vs. Louisiana-Monroe is set to kick off in Norman, OK at 7 p.m. EST on Saturday, Aug. 31, according to an Aug. 29 Dallas Morning News report. The live stream video and audio coverage of the first OU game is available to subscribers via pay-per-view here.
Even if you live in the viewing area, you will not be able to find a legitimate live stream video coverage of OU vs. ULM. The only way to watch this game on TV is to purchase a pay-per-view package. If you do, you can find the game on UVerse channels 635/1635, DirecTV channels 686/686-1, or Dish channel 459. The pay-per-view radio broadcast will air on Sirius 135, XM 195.
Interestingly, ULM has made the early season non-conference games difficult in the past for big teams. Because of that the Sooners better watch out so that they don't become another Big 12 upset in week 1 like Kansas State on Friday night. Of course, most likely OU will show up at home and end the game with an impressive win, which is what the team really needs after losing to Texas A&M in the Cotton Bowl.
While it is exciting for NCAA college football to finally start, OU fans who aren't willing to buy a pay-per-view will likely be stuck waiting another week to watch the team in action.
