Saturday’s matchup between the Kings and Rockets features some of the game’s most promising young players. The Kings overachieved last season, snapping their 16-season playoff drought. The Rockets are looking to follow suit and end the season over .500 for the first time since 2019-2020. If you’re watching in League Pass in the U.S., you should have no problems accessing the game. However, watching the game abroad may require a VPN.

By combining a VPN with Sling TV, users will alleviate the streaming issues that come up with regional broadcast restrictions. A VPN will bypass these limitations while adding more security and privacy to your connection. A VPN will assign you an IP from the U.S. to make it seem like you’re streaming from home. NordVPN is our top recommendation for VPN services. One of the best VPN services available, NordVPN allows customers to try the service for free for a month.

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.
