The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, commonly known as the United Kingdom (UK) or Britain (//), is a sovereign state located off the north-western coast of continental Europe. The country includes the island of Great Britain (a term sometimes loosely applied to the whole state), the north-eastern part of the island of Ireland, and many smaller islands. Northern Ireland is the only part of the UK that shares a land border with another state: the Republic of Ireland. Apart from this land border, the UK is surrounded by the Atlantic Ocean, with the North Sea in the east, the English Channel in the south and the Irish Sea in the west.
NBC Sports Network (formerly OLN and Versus) airs college football games from various college football conferences.
The network added college football coverage knowing the NFL contract was set to expire following the 2005 NFL season. They were hoping to get some games, but were shut out. The NFL decided to grant the remaining games to its own NFL Network. Versus instead added games from the Mountain West Conference (MWC) as part of a deal between Comcast (the owner of Versus), CBS Sports Network and the MWC which also lead to the creation of the MountainWest Sports Network.
