nvidia driver appears to crash after login

Last night I ran an update on my computer that has an nvidia GTX 1080. After the update, after the login screen appears and I enter my credentials, the entire screen goes blank. Booting into run level 2 and looking through journalctl logs of the last reboot, I'm seeing some sort of reference to a null pointer exception. The specific message says something like "BUG: unable to handle kernel NULL pointer dereference at 0000000000000000000". Is this a known issue currently being worked on? I tried running "dnf downgrade xorg-x11-nvidia-drv", but got a message saying it couldn't do it due to conflicting packages and try running with "--allowerasing". Given the finicky nature of the nvidia drivers I'm hesitant to do so, but this problem completely prevents me from logging into my system.
