New York Giants vs. San Francisco 49ers live stream: Watch Thursday Night Football for free

A historic rivalry resumes in Week 3 of the 2023 NFL season as the New York Giants (1-1) travel to the Bay area to play the San Francisco 49ers (2-0) on Thursday Night Football. The game will be played at Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, California. How is this even a rivalry? The Giants and 49ers have played each other 42 times, with both teams winning 21 games.

Last week, the Giants were down 20-0 to the Arizona Cardinals at halftime. Thanks to a huge second half from quarterback Daniel Jones, the Giants outscored the Cardinals 31-8 in the final two quarters to escape Arizona with a three-point victory. Meanwhile, San Francisco took care of business against the Los Angeles Rams, winning 30-23.

The 49ers are a huge 10-point favorite on FanDuel. Why is the spread so large? The Giants will be missing four starters due to injury – running back Saquon Barkley, left tackle Andrew Thomas, left guard Ben Bredeson, and linebacker Azeez Ojulari.

USC Trojans vs. Oregon Ducks live stream: watch college football for free
Aerial view of the crowd at Oregon's Autzen Stadium.

College football doesn't get much better than a night game at Autzen Stadium in Eugene, Oregon. The No. 6 Oregon Ducks (8-1) will host the USC Trojans (7-3) in a Pac-12 rivalry game on Saturday night. The opening kickoff is scheduled for 10:30 p.m. ET/7:30 p.m. PT on November 11. Tim Brando, Spencer Tillman, and Josh Sims will call the game on Fox.

USC and Oregon are two teams heading in different directions. USC has lost three of their last four games and will likely not qualify for the Pac-12 Championship in Las Vegas. Meanwhile, Oregon remains one of the best teams in the country, with their only blemish coming on the road in a three-point loss to Washington. If Oregon wins out, they will likely have their rematch with Washington in the conference championship.

All eyes will be on the No. 3 Michigan Wolverines (9-0) on Saturday when they travel to Happy Valley to play the No. 10 Penn State Nittany Lions in front of what's expected to be a rowdy crowd at Beaver Stadium.

Gus Johnson (play-by-play), Joel Klatt (analyst), and Jenny Taft (reporter) will be on the call for Michigan versus Penn State.

Michigan is the most-talked-about team in college football for reasons off the field. The Wolverines have been accused of illegally stealing signs from their competition. An investigation is currently underway. The University of Michigan has expressed its support for head coach Jim Harbaugh. However, the NCAA and Big Ten are determining when and how they should discipline the team. Will Harbaugh be fined and suspended? Will Michigan have to forfeit their postseason eligibility? Keep in mind: Michigan is in the hunt for a National Championship and must beat Penn State if they want any shot at the playoff.
