How to watch the 2023 college football playoff semifinals live free without cable: The Streamable

The teams are ready and the games are about to start. The 2023 NCAA Division I College Football Playoffs will kick off on Saturday, December 31 with two semifinal games on ESPN. No. 2 Michigan takes on No. 3 TCU in the first game of the day, and No. 1 Georgia will take on No. 4 Ohio State in a prime-time matchup. A trip to the college football championship is on the line, and you can watch both semifinal games with a Sling TV subscription.

This is the weekend college football fans look forward to all season. Michigan and Georgia enter the playoffs undefeated, while TCU and Ohio State enter the tournament with one loss each. Ohio State’s lone loss of the season came at the hands of Michigan, so fans in both states will be on the edge of their seats to see if a championship game rematch is on the cards.

For the first time since 2019, Field Pass returns to ESPN2 to provide an alternate broadcast of games. “Field Pass with The Pat McAfee Show” will feature lively, entertaining commentary from the CFP Semifinals, hosted by Pat McAfee, who will be roaming the sides of Mercedes-Benz Stadium for both semifinal games.

McAfee will call the action from the unique point of view, while also being joined by a rotation of ESPN analysts, notables and celebrities throughout the game. From the Vrbo Fiesta Bowl, Robert Griffin III, Taylor Lewan and AQ Shipley will join McAfee, AJ Hawk and Darius Butler, who will be live from Atlanta. In primetime, the trio will welcome “Stanford Steve” Coughlin among other guests during their second semifinal matchup.
