NOTRE DAME, Ind. – University of Notre Dame football and NextVR, the leader in broadcasting live events in virtual reality, announced they will deliver several virtual reality features from the Oct. 15 Notre Dame vs. Stanford football game at 7:30 p.m. ET on NBC.

NextVR will release several highlight packages throughout the game in virtual reality, concluding each quarter with audio commentary from University of Notre Dame alumnus, Heisman Trophy winner and Pro Football Hall of Fame inductee Tim Brown and NBC announcers.

“We are pleased to be working with NextVR, in conjunction with our long time media partner NBC Sports, to pilot new fan experiences that bring them closer to the action,” said Dan Skendzel, Senior Associate Athletics Director for Media and Branding.
