HIGH SCHOOL STATION, TEXAS – Texas A&M has just two games left in its 2022 season as the Aggies are bowl ineligible. However, the team is looking to end a six-game losing streak next weekend, the longest since 1972. And it’s a very good chance for Maroon and White to do so, as they’re heavy favorites over UMass at Kyle Field. It also marks Senior Day and Military Appreciation Day in Aggieland.
Here’s how to watch Texas A&M vs. UMass. Just a note that this is Texas A&M’s streaming only game. Every team in the SEC has one competition per year that is available for streaming only. Wording can get confusing since ESPN has several services with “Plus” in their names. There are two ways to stream: SEC Network+ and ESPN+. ESPN+ is a standalone service that users pay to watch smaller-level games, MMA, international sports, and the like. However, you do not need to log in to see the game. SEC Network+ means you can log into ESPN.com with your cable provider credentials and watch the game.
SEC Network+ is in addition to subscribers to the SEC network and accessible with the access data of your TV provider (YouTube TV, DirecTV, AT&T UVerse, Comcast, etc.).
Access is via the ESPN app on smartphones, tablets, connected streaming devices (like Apple TV, Roku, Chromecast, etc.) or via watchspn.com.
There has been a lot of confusion over the past few years as the ESPN site and app will likely only show the feed for ESPN+ ahead of the game. However, just before kick-off, a separate feed for SEC Network+ (which is free to anyone who has ESPN in their cable package) will appear in the schedule of games. Fans just have to wait for that to happen.
