Check the filter, may be wrong type or it could be defective (there should be a spring loaded bypass to prevent this in case of failure). I've heard of a C6 with a blown engine because of this.
If it still does it with a new filter, then check the sensor.

I agree. Too much of a coincidence that it happened at the same time as the oil change, although anything is possible.
