How to watch Clemson and Ohio State in the Sugar Bowl today without cable

The Tigers and the Buckeyes will play for a spot in the college football championship game on ESPN.

Clemson won the ACC and Ohio State won the Big Ten to set up a rematch of last year's semifinal game that the Tigers narrowly won after the Buckeyes coughed up a big lead. The game features two of the top quarterbacks in college football, Clemson's Trevor Lawrence and Ohio State's Justin Fields. This year, the two teams will meet in New Orleans for the Sugar Bowl with a chance to advance to the national championship game against the winner of the Rose Bowl between Alabama and Notre Dame.

The Sugar Bowl kicks off today, Friday, Jan. 1, at 8 p.m. ET (5 p.m. PT) and will be broadcast on ESPN. Here's how you can watch without cable.
