Winners and Losers from Week 8 of College Football

After a relatively sedated start during the early slate, Week 8 of the 2020 college football season went off the rails.

AP Nos. 8 (Penn State), 17 (Iowa State) and 19 (Virginia Tech) each suffered losses by a one-score margin within less than an hour of each other. Penn State's loss was particularly absurd, as the Nittany Lions got the ball back with the lead with less than two minutes remaining only to somehow lose by a fraction of an inch in overtime.

Speaking of overtime, while all those "more important" games were going on, Rice missed what would have been a game-winning field goal in overtime on a QUADRUPLE DOINK.
