Nick Saban says Arkansas could be a 'trap game' for No. 1 Alabama
There are numerous reasons why Nick Saban has earned a reputation as a coach who never allows his players to ease up.
The Alabama coach gave another one during his Monday press conference, referring to the top-ranked Crimson Tide’s upcoming trip to Arkansas as a “trap game.”
Nick Saban: "This is what I call a little bit of a trap game for us."

That might be a little bit of a stretch from Saban, whose team opened as a five-touchdown favorite against the Razorbacks. Alabama has had almost no trouble coasting through its first five games and appears to be the most complete team in the country by a healthy margin.
Just don’t tell Saban any of that. He’s trying to make sure his Crimson Tide (5-0, 2-0 SEC) takes nothing for granted when it faces Arkansas (1-4, 0-2) at noon ET on Saturday.
