Bob Davie was taken to an Albuquerque hospital after New Mexico's game Saturday, the program announced.

“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 condition," UNM AD Eddie Nunez said in a statement.

“The university will release more information as it becomes available.

“We ask that you keep the Davie family in your prayers.”

According to the Albuquerque Journal, Davie was seen clutching his midsection and his chest multiple times, and at one point knelt to the ground.
