The Senior Bowl is the all-star game for college football, which handily also showcases the leading NFL Draft prospects. (Remember, the 2021 Draft will be on Thursday 29 April through Saturday 1 May). The Draft starts in Mobile”, is the tagline for the Senior Bowl, here are all the details you need on how to watch the action.

Unlike the Super Bowl - which is happening next weekend, Sunday 7 February - the Senior Bowl doesn’t move around from ground to ground, being held every year in... Mobile, Alabama.

All the players at the Senior Bowl have completed their college eligibility and are invited to the event. They get a week-long practice session, which is attended by NFL personnel - coaches, general managers and scouts - who use the opportunity to decide what the attendees chances in pro football will be.

As of this year the players are rostered into American and National teams (it used to be North and South), with the coaches this time around being the Caroline Panthers’ Matt Rhule for the American team and Brian Flores of the Miami Dolphins for the National team.

This year’s Senior Bowl has an extra importance, because the NFL Combine has been cancelled this year, due to the coronavirus pandemic.

When does the 2021 Senior Bowl start?

Coverage of this year’s Senior Bowl gets underway on Saturday, January 30, 2021, at 1:30 p.m. CT (2:30 p.m. ET, 11:30 a.m. PT and 8:30 p.m. CET). The game is taking place in the Hancock Whitney Stadium, at the University of South Alabama in Mobile, Alabama.

Find out what time that is no matter where you are in the world.

Where can I watch the Senior Bowl 2021?


The Senior Bowl is live on the NFL Network, so for cable users, it’s likely available direct. Check out your channel using the NFL Network guide at the top of their schedule page.

It’s also available as a stream on YouTubeTV, fuboTV or sling (with a free trial).

Senior Bowl around the world

The easiest way to watch the Senior Bowl outside the US is streaming it with NFL Game Pass.

You can check out which countries Game Pass is available in (it’s a pretty comprehensive list, but not Canada and of course the US are not on there, and be careful as their geography seems occasionally a bit off, Morocco not generally being seen as part of the Middle East, for example).

Pricing varies by country, and in most places you can get a reduced pass that only takes you through to and including the Super Bowl, which is on Sunday 7 February.
