Pac-12 Football: Every Team's Biggest Trap Game for 2014 Season
Will Mike Leach and the Cougars be a trap game for Pac-12 heavyweights?

Nearly every team in the Pac-12 can break its schedule up into three parts: games that should be won, games that will likely result in a loss and, of course, toss-ups.

Unless you're Cal, which has zero automatic wins on the 2014 docket, or you're Oregon, which doesn't have any contests that look like definite losses (the same can be said for UCLA and Stanford, for that matter), every week of the season likely fits into one of those categories.

But which games in the first category (should be won) don't belong there at all? Which seemingly easy victories could end up being challenging and maybe even a loss altogether?

We're taking a look at the trap games, which don't normally stand out as dangerous or tricky on the schedule. Trap games typically come just before or right after a major showdown, and they usually happen against teams with talent and potential that haven't been able to put it together.

Oregon and UCLA are not trap games, because no one is overlooking either squad this season.

So where lie the losses we can't see coming? Which teams will be overlooked? Here's the biggest trap game for every team in the Pac-12 in 2014.
