Bob Davie knew exactly how to begin his opening statement during Tuesday’s press conference.

It’s an understatement to say that this opponent will be different from Incarnate Word, the team the Lobos defeated 62-30 last weekend. Davie said he had a lot of respect for UIW, but he is well aware how tough this upcoming game will be.
