We'll soon know whether the University of Washington will claim the national college football title, after the Huskies square off against Michigan in Monday's championship game.

How to watch: The big matchup will air at 4:30pm PT on ESPN.

  • It will also be streamed on ESPN — but not ESPN+ — fuboTV, Hulu + Live TV and Sling.

Local watch parties: The free watch party at Alaska Airlines Arena on the UW campus is sold out, but many other places are hosting get-togethers.

Other watch events will unfold at Big Mario's Northlake near the UW campus; The Barking Dog Alehouse in Phinney Ridge; Stilos Kitchen & Bar in Greenwood; and Ounces in West Seattle.

Plus: Redhook Brewlab on Capitol Hill will hold a watch party with a $25–$30 entry fee that includes a buffet.

Zoom out: In Tacoma, The Grand Cinema is streaming the game live ($20 entry). Another watch party is planned at Poquitos Tacoma in the Stadium District ($10–15 entry).

Thought bubble: Any bar or restaurant we visit this afternoon had better have this game blasting from every screen.

Editor's note: This story was corrected to say the game will not be streamed on ESPN+.
