The days are getting shorter and shorter, which means football season is just around the corner! If you are a fan of NCAA football, you might want to consider Kodi as an alternative to network TV. With the 2018 games spread out over several networks, and so many of them only accessible in certain regions, cutting the cord might be the key to catching all the action this season. Luckily, almost every match-up can be found using a Kodi addon installed on your Amazon Firestick or Fire TV. In addition to freeing you from the big networks, these third-party addons don’t cost a thing (although we do HIGHLY recommend using a reputable VPN service).
Below is our guide to the best free addons for watching college football in 2018. Considering how the games are being shown by at least half a dozen different networks (ABC, NBC, ESPN, FOX, CBS, SEC, Big Ten), it may require using multiple addons to ensure you will find a source for every game you are interested in.
Be warned however; many of these unlicensed addons stream content that may be illegal in your country or region. We never condone piracy, and always advise that you should be cautious when accessing these addons. If you want to ensure your privacy and security while using Kodi addons, we highly recommend using a quality VPN service. Check out our guide to VPN here.

US-based IPVanish boasts many excellent qualities that we look for in a VPN: it’s fast, and has about 1,000 server locations spread across the globe. This is an old stand-by for us that we still heartily recommend.
Private Internet Access is a great VPN service for someone looking for something a bit more affordable. It’s just about the cheapest option out there, but still has a respectable amount of functionality.
VyprVPN is a solid VPN choice with few drawbacks. This Swiss service operates about 700 servers, with a great spread of about 70 countries. The “Chameleon Protocol” it offers for premium subscribers is nice, but some customers may be turned off by the limited number of devices they can connect.
TunnelBear is a quirky Canadian VPN service that may be a good choice if you are just looking for something reasonably priced and extremely user-friendly. This company clearly prides itself on it’s colorful, intuitive layout that virtually anyone should be able to figure out right away.
TorGuard is a US-based VPN provider with a lot going for it, despite it’s relatively high price. As the name suggests, this service is built for torrenting, so if that’s your game, TorGuard might be the one for you.
The irreverently-named Hide My Ass is a popular VPN service with what is probably the broadest range of servers of any company out there. Based in England, it operates over 800 servers out of an impressive 220+ countries. However, it’s logging policy has left some users concerned about how safe their privacy really is.
While not technically free, Gears TV is an app with 500+ live TV channels. You will be able to easily watch all of the streaming network TV college games in one place. It includes league passes for live streaming every ESPN U, NFL, NBA, NHL, MLB games as well as all PPV events for only $15 a month.
In our experience, Gears TV was the app that felt the most like a real replacement for cable. It collects all of the popular channels and major sports in one place and provides reliable, high-quality streams for a fraction of the price. Reliable streaming in an easy to use app has quickly made Gears TV the number one choice for Sports Fans with Fire TVs.
The other addons on this list are free, but their connections can be much shakier and less reliable. There’s nothing worse than having all your friends over to watch the big game, only to have the afternoon ruined by a glitchy connection. Gears TV is much more reliable (and costs so little) we think it is well worth the investment.
