The broadcast will be on Facebook. Has anyone here watched a Facebook sports broadcast and streamed it to their television via Chromecast? Wondering if it's similar to WatchESPN. I'd imagine so, but figured I'd ask. Want to watch the game at home this Saturday on the big screen :mrgreen:

You’ll probably have to create an account to see it.

If you have a facebook account, when you log onto Facebook, it will be right in front of you when they're broadcasting.

I have never sent it to a TV, but typically use a 24 inch monitor with my laptop. I might use a plain old USB or HDMI cord to connect to a 48" HDTV for this game though.

No letdown this week: Tulane knows it needs to stay focused.

https://www.theadvocate.com/new_orleans ... 22c68.html

They talk about staying focused, but I don't like that the players and Coach Fritz also talk about UAB being a "lower team." Until we win 8-10 games for a few years in a row, we have zero right to talk about ANYONE being a lower team. This is bulletin board material for UAB. I don't like it at all.

And Spencer Brown could be the best RB we've faced thus far. It will be a test for our D, which gave up over 400 yards to that FCS team last weekend.

The Kickoff Countdown shows 5 PM kick off. Did they move it from noon?

Sorry. Fixed. When I enter in the schedule for the countdown way before the season, the start time isn't usually set, so they're not always correct.

I don’t use Chromecast but you shouldn’t have a problem. I watched a game this past weekend on Facebook Live and was able to mirror it on my Tv through Apple TV Airplay. Had no issues at all.

Not sure but you all can test it out as there are always Facebook live events going on. I just typed in Facebook Live in the FB search box and under videos there were some events including an NAIA womens volleyball match. https://www.facebook.com/LTUAthletics/v ... 992020101/

Add Facebook to your Roku Player if you don’t already have it. On your Roku, download the Facebook Channel if you don't have it already. Then you can probably find the live Stream of UAB or CUSA.

Others agree with you Dave. Not a good look.

Will one be able to just "stream" the game from a specific facebook page if one already has a log in? if so, can anyone post the actual FB url to said game before the kickoff . Much obliged!

Roll wave. Beat UAB! Got an email from a poster seeing of I was alive or not (lolol) and I am! I was at the last game cheering us on in person!

I'm trying to finish my PhD by December so I've been very MIA, but still happy with our progress. We should be 2-0 so I'm alive enough to be irritated.

Roll wave! Cannot wait to be a degreed Tulanian x3 and cannot wait to beat UAB! If Coastal can beat em...
