The Shamrock Series is coming to NBC Sports Network.

In fact, the Notre Dame "home game," which will kick off at 7:30 p.m. on Nov. 21 at Fenway Park, will be the first Irish football telecast ever to be broadcast on NBCSN.

NBC also announced on Wednesday that Doug Flutie will serve as lead analyst for Notre Dame football telecasts in 2015, continuing a role he adopted near the end of last season. Flutie will be joined by play-by-play announcer Dan Hicks and sideline reporter Kathryn Tappen. 

Former Super Bowl champion and Miami linebacker Jonathan Vilma will join the NBC team as a pregame and halftime analyst this season, working alongside Liam McHugh and Hines Ward.
