The 100+ game rivalry between the Illinois State Redbirds (3-4) and Western Illinois Leathernecks (1-7) gets its second entry this year following a spring match-up. This is officially the 104th time these two teams with no love for one another have clashed on the football field.
Kickoff between WIU and Illinois State is set for 4 pm ET / 1 pm PT. The game will not be found on a traditional TV channel or on a cable network. You will need to stream it online, and the only way to do so is with an ESPN+ subscription.
With an ESPN Plus account you can not only watch the Illinois State and WIU football game, but other college football games throughout the 2021 season. Plus there are tons of other sports and original series, including every 30-for-30 documentary, ready to stream.
The cost of ESPN+ is currently only $6.99 a month or $69.99 for an entire year, so it is one of the cheapest standalone streaming services available.
ESPN+ Disney+ Hulu Bundle
A $13.99 a month bundle option including Disney+, ESPN+ and the ad-supported version of Hulu is another option to consider. This deal dubbed “Get All Three” is a fantastic bargain that is already being enjoyed by millions of subscribers.
Disney is also now offering a $19.99 a month bundle option that includes the ad-free version of Hulu.
If you already have a Hulu account then you will receive a bill credit for each month that you’re subscribed to the bundle deal.
Look for the ESPN+ app to show up on a variety of devices including Xbox and PlayStation gaming consoles; LG, Samsung and Sony TVs, Roku boxes, Chromecast, iPhone or iPad, and Amazon Fire TV boxes and Fire Sticks.
