Big Ten Football: Every Team's Biggest Trap Game for the 2014 Season
Michael Conroy/Associated Press

It was almost exactly seven years ago that Michigan, then the No. 5 team in the nation, fell victim to one of the biggest trap games ever: a Week 1 visit from FCS Appalachian State. Even the best the Big Ten has to offer can succumb to pretty apparent traps from time to time.  

Could it happen again in 2014?

Michigan is no longer a top-five team, and Appalachian State is no longer an FCS program, as the Mountaineers move to the FBS as a member of the Sun Belt this season. Still, there are enough pitfalls on the schedule all throughout the Big Ten to make any coach wary of early predictions for conference titles or College Football Playoff berths.

It's safe to say that there are games, like the Mountaineers' second visit to the Big House in a couple of short weeks, that won't be sneaking up on anyone.

But where are the quagmires for 2014?  

Let's hone our Jedi senses as we sniff out the trap game of 2014 for each Big Ten team.
