The streaming service has also provided exclusive live coverage of the Notre Dame Football Blue-Gold game, Notre Dame Pro Day and Notre Dame hockey.
The Fighting Irish (3-3) narrowly fell to rival Stanford, 16-14, last Saturday. Tight end Michael Mayer, who ranks third in the country in receiving yards for a tight end with 411, recorded five catches for 60 yards, and running back Audric Estime ran for 57 yards and a touchdown as Notre Dame combined for 150 yards on the ground.
UNLV (4-3) lost to the Air Force Falcons, 42-7, at home last Saturday. Wide receiver Ricky White had 58 receiving yards and a score and linebacker Austin Ajiake recorded 20 total tackles in the losing effort. Saturday marks the first-ever meeting between the Fighting Irish and Rebels.
NBC Sports’ Jac Collinsworth (play-by-play) and Jason Garrett (game analyst) will call the matchup with Zora Stephenson (sideline reporter) and Terry McAulay (rules analyst).
Coverage of Notre Dame-UNLV begins Saturday at 2 p.m. ET on Peacock with a 30-minute on-site pregame show previewing the matchup hosted by NBC Sports’ Kathryn Tappen alongside guest analysts and alums Kyren Williams (Notre Dame) and Kenny Mayne (UNLV). Tappen, Williams and Mayne will also anchor halftime and postgame coverage.
Kyren Williams currently plays running back for the Los Angeles Rams after being selected in the fifth round of the 2022 NFL Draft. Williams earned Second Team All-ACC and ACC Rookie of the Year honors last season at Notre Dame.
Kenny Mayne was a quarterback for two years at UNLV and signed as a free agent with the Seattle Seahawks before becoming a sports media personality.
