In college football, yes. If the score is tied at the end of an overtime period, the game continues. Overtime rules in college football are set up so that there cannot be a tie game ... overtime periods will be played until one team is ahead at the end of an OT period. In the NFL, not in the regular season. If no team scores in the overtime period, the game ends and is declared a tie. Obviously, in the playoffs there can be a double overtime as those games must have a winner.

How many overtimes college football?

There is no set length. Each team alternates possessions following established college football overtime rules until one team remains in the lead after a complete overtime period (both teams having had a possession). The current NCAA Division I-FBS record for overtime periods is seven. The record for the shortest is one (two plays). It is possible for overtime to last just one play; if the team that starts on defense intercepts the ball or recovers a fumble and returns it for a touchdown. That has not yet happened in NCAA competition since overtime was instituted in 1996.
