ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. – New Mexico coach Bob Davie, rushed to an Albuquerque hospital after his team's season-opening victory over Sam Houston State on Saturday with “a serious medical incident,” said Sunday he expects to make a full recovery.

School officials still haven't disclosed Davie's ailment.

The Albuquerque Journal reported that several times during Saturday afternoon's game in which the Lobos won 39-31, Davie could be seen with his hands on his midsection and chest and at one point was kneeling on the sidelines.

Davie, 64, a former Notre Dame coach, was taken by ambulance to nearby University of New Mexico Hospital after the game.
