Big Ten Football: 5 Trap Games of Week 2
Mike Carter-USA TODAY Sports

The Big Ten made it through the first week of the 2013 college football season with an impressive 10-2 record, best among all FBS conferences. Week 2 is shaping up to provide more of the same for a hopefully resurgent Big Ten, but that doesn't mean the upcoming schedule isn't without its pitfalls.

Several teams are heading into seemingly innocuous warm-up games this Saturday in preparation for big-time clashes looming in Week 3 or Week 4. As is often the fear for coaches and fans across the nation, players can get caught flat-footed in these trap games as they look past seemingly inferior opposition towards the epic showdown to come.

While every Big Ten team on this list should be a massive favorite this weekend, they'll still need to avoid falling into these traps before heading into games with national implications over the next few weeks.
