The wildest game of Saturday's college football slate came from a game hidden deep into the selections on ESPN+. The Eastern Kentucky Colonels took down the Bowling Green Falcons 59-57 in seven overtimes, in a game that took four and a half hours. At seven overtimes, it's only topped by Illinois' nine-overtime victory over Penn State in 2021. Oh, and Eastern Kentucky — who entered the game as a 7.5-point underdog — is an FCS program, while Bowling Green — a member of the MAC — is part of the FBS.
