The University of New Mexico Lobos gave up over 500 total yards and converted just one of 15 third down attempts against the visiting FCS Sam Houston State Bearkats on Saturday evening at DreamStyle Stadium on Saturday Night.
Although the Lobos held on to win their opening game of the season 39-31, there was little excitement after the game with the news that head football coach Bob Davie was taken via ambulance to the hospital shortly after the final whistle.
According to Steve Virgen of the Albuquerque Journal via Twitter, Davie was taken to the hospital for what is believed to be heart trouble.
UNM Athletic Director Eddie Nunez released the following statement regarding Davie:
“Immediately following tonight’s football game between The University of New Mexico and Sam Houston State University, Lobo Head Coach Bob Davie was taken to the hospital as a result of what appeared to be a serious medical incident. The University will release more information as it becomes available.
We ask that you keep the Davie family in your prayers.”
