How to Watch this Year’s Super Bowl
By Charlie Williamson, Sports Editor
The matchup is set for Super Bowl LIII, where Tom Brady will go for his 6th Super Bowl ring against a Rams team that was 4-12 just two years ago and appearing in their first Super Bowl since 2001. According to ESPN, the Rams and New England both boast Top-5 offenses in the league this year, both averaging over 27 points a game. To watch what should be one of the bigger offense-heavy Super Bowls in recent memory, we have put together a guide of four different ways to watch the game:
Matchup: Los Angeles Rams vs. New England Patriots
Date: Sunday, February 3
Kickoff: 6:30 p.m. ET.
Venue: Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, Georgia
The Campus Activities Board (CAB) will sponsor a viewing party at The Junction beginning at 6:00 p.m. The game will be projected on a large screen, and mozzarella sticks from Bullet Hole will be served, said Haley Gluhanich ’19, CAB’s Finance Coordinator. The event is free for college students; it is not host-provider. The Junction is located behind Commons in the CUB building.
Cable television is still available in many residence hall common rooms across campus including in first-year residence halls and some houses. A full list of common rooms where cable television available can be found on the IT website.
Stream the Game Online
NBC will stream the game online via CBSsports.com as well as through its mobile apps. Various other streaming options are also available. Using a laptop or other compatible device, students can plug this feed into a television in their residence hall room and watch it as they would have any other year. According to Vice President of Information Technology, HDMI cables are also available via G-Tech, which is in the West Building, however, they are first-come, first serve basis and supplies are limited.
Go Off Campus
Obviously, there are no shortage of off-campus opportunities of all flavors at which to watch the Super Bowl from people’s homes to bars and restaurants. Chances are that if a venue has a television, it will be tuned into the game. Of course, if choosing this option, exercise good judgment with respect to consuming alcohol and operating motor vehicles.
Enjoy the game!
