The LSU Tigers next game against the Towson Tigers should get out of hand quickly.
In fact, the very notion of creating a "5 Keys to Victory" piece for this game is somewhat senseless, and that's just keeping it honest.
LSU is one of the best teams in the nation, while Towson can barely fend off foes in the Colonial Athletic Association.
But I digress—the second-best team in the country will absolutely, positively destroy the Towson Tigers this upcoming Saturday, and here are the keys to victory.
There's no chance Towson can match athlete-for-athlete with LSU.
Heck, most of the teams in the FBS, with the exception of maybe the Top 10 teams in the nation, can't. Zach Mettenberger should have a career day throwing the football around to talented wideouts like Jarvis Landry, Odell Beckham, Russell Shepard and, who seems to always be his favorite target, Kadron Boone.
Running backs like Kenny Hilliard and Spencer Ware should also have big days, as this offensive line should man-handle any front Towson presents.
And as for the defense, expect LSU to force multiple turnovers and assert its dominance early in the game.
Simply put, LSU's talent won't allow this game to be within reach.
With Towson so heavily outmatched against LSU, simply taking good care of the football should be enough for LSU to win.
Let's not be coy—Towson will have to force multiple turnovers and be on the receiving hand of a lot of momentum switches just to compete against LSU.
If LSU takes this possibility away by protecting the ball and playing efficient, LSU will blow Towson out of the water.
Mettenberger threw an interception against Idaho that led to a score for the Vandals, and though LSU should be able to overcome mistakes such as that in this game, LSU should try to avoid those scenarios altogether.
Speaking of the Idaho game, LSU may have won 63-14, but it was far from pretty.
There's just a dissatisfaction that surrounds a team when they simply don't play to their full potential, even if the scoreboard doesn't reflect that notion.
That's why it's important to play sound football and dominate this game in every phase without making any crucial mistakes.
A near flawless performance to build off of and gain momentum before LSU heads into The Swamp next week could prove to be valuable before taking on a durable Florida team.
LSU's depth isn't quite as deep as it was before fall camp.
After Tyrann Mathieu was dismissed from the team, Tahj Jones was ruled academically ineligible and LSU lost Alfred Blue to an injury in the Idaho game, injuries can have a much larger impact with the somewhat depleted depth.
Still, this LSU team is as deep as they come, but the Tigers shouldn't risk any of their prime-time performers' health after this game is put to bed in the second quarter.
After a comfortable lead, sitting key players could benefit LSU by letting them rest up before the big encounter against the Gators the following week.
There's no better way to learn than to face competition under the bright lights of Tiger Stadium and the game against Towson should serve as a golden opportunity for young LSU players.
Players like Stephen Rivers and Jeremy Hill, who should become valuable assets to this team in later years, will most likely be in the game before the third quarter ends.
This is a good chance to not only see what the backups can do in a real game situation, but it's great to get young players some playing experience early on in their careers.
Considering the fact that Towson poses a very little threat to LSU, young players should get plenty of action in this contest.
