Mark Mangino spoke with the media Tuesday afternoon, and after a 45-13 win over Toledo, the Jayhawks are preparing for Florida International.

"They have very good team speed on offense, they do a lot of different things with their offensive line in the run schemes." Mangino said. "Coach Cristobal has them going in the right direction. They are a very well disciplined team."
