My understanding is ESPN+ is a new online streaming subscription ($4.99/month) available direct to consumers.
https://plus.espn.com/

ESPN, ESPN2, ESPNU, and ESPN News are television channels available as part of a standard (or premium) subscription package offered by local cable/satellite providers. ESPN3 is online streaming content only available to existing cable/satellite subscription members.

"Watch ESPN" is the app/website used to watch online broadcasts of ESPN, ESPN2, ESPNU, ESPN3, and now ESPN+ content.

A pre-season preview of Ball State from a Notre Damn fan site and written by a MAC blogger.

5. What’s your prediction for this team’s game against Notre Dame this year?

Let’s not kid ourselves: Ball State probably won’t be a favorite to beat Notre Dame on the road. ON the contrary, they’re probably going to be a 30-ish point underdog when Vegas unveils the lines going into the game. They’ll be coming off a game which will likely be their first win of the season vs. Central Connecticut State before making the trip to South Bend, so they might have some momentum going. Notre Dame will be supremely talented and probably talked about to be in a NY6 or Playoff spot once again in 2018. That said, Ball State has given in-state P5 rival Indiana, winning two of the last three match-ups, so who’s to say they can’t try to make a game of it?

I ultimately think Vegas will prove to be right, but I’ll be chirping all the way to the bitter end.

Maybe I'm being naive but an upset isn't out of the question. They are a low end MAC team.

Wagner played FAU very tough several years ago and Duquesne did the same against Buffalo so at least a close game is possible.

Absolutely. Yeah, they are an FBS team and have more scholarships than we do. Still, it is not like we are going to be playing the 1969 Texas Longhorns.

*For Entertainment Purposes Only*

CCSU is currently a 10.5-point underdog at Ball State. Over/Under is 61.5 points.

Here are a few other games of interest that week:

Duquesne +23 at UMass
Monmouth +17 at Eastern Michigan
Stony Brook +10 at Air Force
Fordham +15.5 at Charlotte

The Huskies host UCF at the same time as CCSU game, so I don't expect any locals to watch our game on ESPN+ :(
UConn +23.5 vs. Central Florida (8/30; 7PM - ESPNU)

“CCSU is currently a 10.5-point underdog at Ball State. Over/Under is 61.5 points.” J.J.

Not a large point spread, so apparently the odds makers share our somewhat subdued optimism. It will be interesting to track the movement of that number. Does anyone have Steve Kornacki’s cell phone number?

Does anyone know if we will have more games on ESPN+ Either basketball or football? Reason being there is a trial period for free. Have way too many monthly subscriptions to get yet another.
