NBCSN (formerly Versus) airs college football games from various college football conferences.

History[edit]

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.

In 2006, Versus used Gary Bender or Bob Papa as the play-by-play announcer, Glenn Parker as the analyst and Argy Stathapulos as the sideline reporter for their coverage of Mountain West football.

On June 6, 2007, it was announced that Versus has agreed to a multi-year year deal with Fox Sports Net to sublicense up to 10 college games annually from the Pac-10 and Big 12 conferences. Previously, these games had aired on TBS.

In 2008, Versus announced a contract with the Ivy League to broadcast at least 3-games a year, culminating in the annual Harvard-Yale football rivalry. The contract was for 2-years and was renewed in 2010.[1]

In 2010, Fox Sports discontinued the Big 12 games on Versus and upped the number of Pac-10 games to 7 a season.

After the 2010 season the Pac-10 announced they were expanding and changing their name to the Pac-12. With 1 to 2 additional games to broadcast each week Fox Sports chose to expand the Pac-12 games by adding college football to FX. Versus would continue with the 7 games they previously received.[2] They would lose those rights to Pac-12 networks beginning in 2012.

For 2012, NBC Sports Network replaced the loss of Pac-12 football[3] by signing a contract to air at least 5 games a year from the CAA. [4] They would also renew the Ivy League contract for another 2 seasons, upping the number of broadcasts from 3 to 5 games a season to 6 to 10 games a season. The Harvard-Yale game remained one of the guaranteed NBCSN broadcasts. [5] They also increased the number of MWC football broadcasts by 2.

In 2013, NBCSN lost its share of MWC rights to ESPN, which had aired a limited MWC schedule in 2012.

Starting in 2016, NBCSN will air select home games of the Notre Dame Fighting Irish football program as part of the school's 10-year contract extension with NBC.
