In overtime, Indiana gets within one on a touchdown before Michael Penix scores a 2-point conversion by inches to upset Penn State. (1:06)

All eyes were on Penn State, but certainly not for the team's successful 2020 season debut.

In the return of the Big Ten, the Nittany Lions fell to Indiana by one point, 36-35 in OT.

How did this upset and the rest of Week 8's results shake up our bowl matchups?
