Summer is over, and it's time for fall! That means pumpkin spice, Halloween decorations, and most importantly of all... football! If you're a cord cutter, that can be a problem because football is hard to watch without cable. If you don't live anywhere near your favorite team, the problems multiply. The most complete and absolute way to ensure you get every game is NFL Sunday Ticket, but that's a service that costs an arm and a leg. Luckily for college students, it doesn't have to. The NFL is celebrating students by giving anyone eligible the full NFL season through NFL Sunday Ticket U for $24.99 a month. If you use code BACKTOSCHOOL you can take another $5 a month off the price, bringing your final total down to $79.97. Considering the full service regularly costs around $294, that's some huge savings.

NFL Sunday Ticket U for college students

NFL Sunday Ticket is tricky, and it's even trickier if you're a student. For example, not all schools are eligible. Sometimes your Student ID may require even more verification. Things like that. You'll just have to fill out the information on the promo page to see if you qualify.

Also, NFL Sunday Ticket is a service of DirecTV. Normally it requires that satellite service to work. And when you try to sign up for the streaming side of it, you need to live in a place where satellite service is inaccessible. None of that is really the case with NFL Sunday Ticket U. There's no satellite stuff required. You can stream from any of your favorite decides like Roku, Google Chromecast, and others.

The service includes all out-of-market Sunday regular-season NFL games. It's based on your device location, too, and games being broadcast locally won't be available. You'll only be able to access one game at a time. Remember the subscription will automatically renew at the next season's going rate if you do not cancel it beforehand.
