Fall Saturdays are for college football, and technology is making the fan experience even more immersive. Fox Sports has been working on updating its virtual reality technology just in time for the Michigan State Spartans to take on the Notre Dame Fighting Irish. Viewers can experience major sporting events in VR, in addition to the traditional broadcast viewing.

With the Fox Sports VR app, fans can watch the game at multiple high-resolution angles, including a 360-degree Skycam. You can also access pre and post-game analysis and halftime events in the app. For a social experience, app users can create avatars and connect with other fans.

Check out the video below to see how the app works.
