Ole Miss QBs using virtual reality


Teams continuously look for ways to gain an edge and improve their teams. Ole Miss is one of several teams this offseason using some form of virtual reality to do so.

The Rebels are using something called SIDEKIQ simulator football software, a product of EON Sports, to help quarterbacks gain a deeper understanding of the offense by being able to make decisions and see the results. UCLA, Kansas and Syracuse are also using the product this offseason.
