It can't be said enough that in America there are two seasons: football season and waiting for football season.
One of the more unique ways to look at the college football season is to look at potential trap games.
I consider trap games to be one of three things.
First, a game against a decent opponent before a "big game." Second, a game against a decent opponent following a "big game." Finally, a combination of the first two, a game against a decent team sandwiched between two "big games."
Throughout this slideshow all of those examples are used, and many are used more than once.
Some of this games appear on the outside to be considered locks. However, in college football nothing is guaranteed and here are some games that top tier teams need to pay special attention too.
