landmine game
 n.— «Yet beyond the hoopla and buildup of these monumental out-of-conference contests and long-circled conference showdowns, the road to a national championship is forged through the weekly grind of conference games against seemingly lower competition. Known to many as “trap” or even “landmine” games, these are the contests that go under the radar every year, and are frequently overlooked as fans and media members make their preseason predictions.» —“College Football: The Most Dangerous Game” by InTheBleachers.net Bleacher Report July 28, 2008.
