The COVID-19 pandemic has caused incredible issues across every facet of life in the United States since March. As many sports were forced to outright stop games until systems and protocols were put in place, college football was no different. But even when using best practices and caution, the virus was still able to spread across college campuses around the country.

Because of that, nearly every FBS college football program that participated in the 2020 season saw cancellations or postponements during the season. In total, 139 games were nixed from the schedules while some games were able to come together on less than three days' notice. It affected not only conference championship races -- as evidenced by Ohio State nearly not making the Big Ten title game because of the conference's own rules -- but the College Football Playoff race as well. 

Here is the full list of college football game that were affected during the 2020 regular season.
