Big Ten to broadcast Minnesota-Nebraska in virtual reality

LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) The Big Ten network is making Saturday's football game between Minnesota and No. 21 Nebraska available in virtual reality.

BTN released a statement on Thursday saying it has partnered with VOKE, a virtual reality provider that will use four, 180-degree HD cameras to bring a new perspective to the game. The game will also be available by regular broadcast on the Big Ten network.

To access the virtual reality version of the game, users must download VOKE's GearVR app and use a Gear VR headset and Samsung mobile phone.
