He knows the Razorback fans do as well as they watched a 28-7 third quarter lead turn into a 34-31 overtime loss to Louisiana-Monroe back on Sept. 8.
But Davis and his fellow seniors will get a chance to go out winners and please the fans at War Memorial Stadium Saturday at 11:21 a.m. when Arkansas (3-4, 2-2) hosts Ole Miss (4-3, 1-2).
"Man, just to be honest, I am excited to go back to Little Rock because you don't lose there for a very, very, long time and then you hiccup," Davis said. "When something like that happens, now I feel like we need to go back and redeem ourselves, go back and defend "The Rock" like we always have in the past. Just get our fans pumped about it, get ourselves pumped about it because that is our other home and you always want to win in your backyard."
The loss in Little Rock – which happened after starting Tyler Wilson missed the second half due to a concussion – started a downward spiral in which the Razorbacks lost four straight home games.
It was a shocking start for a team that was 21-5 the last two seasons and was ranked as high as eighth after a season-opening win.
"Not just us, I think it's shocked everyone," Davis said. "Our fans, our parents, the coaches, the training staff, anyone associated with the program. I feel like there were high expectations and we came out and we had a little slump at the beginning of the season. But now we're back on our feet and we are ready to continue what we have going right now. Our confidence is back up I think will do great."
Indeed the Razorbacks got a much-needed shot of confidence by winning their last two games – 24-7 at Auburn and a 49-7 weather-shortened home victory over Kentucky – before last week's open date.
"I believe so," Davis said. "There is nothing like getting your juices flowing and knowing that you can be more confident now that you've got a few wins behind you. I think our guys understand that we are in a great position right now coming off two big wins in the SEC. I think it will carry over. We just have to take it one day at a time, one game at a time and just keep playing good ball."
Arkansas will be playing two straight 11:21 a.m. game with this Saturday's game against Ole Miss and then a home game in Fayetteville against Tulsa on Nov. 3.
Offensive lineman Travis Swanson says that's not a big deal since the Razorbacks are up early the rest of the week as well.
"It's different," Swanson said. "You wake up a little bit earlier. Our whole weekly schedule is around waking up early so I think it's good for us as opposed to a six o'clock night game. You wake up, eat and do a walkthrough and the sit down for about two or three hours and kind of wait. So I feel the 11 a.m. games are good for us because that is how we are programmed."
Davis believes some of his teammates have to do a bit more to get ready for an earlier game simply because they aren't morning people.
"It is a little bit different, a little earlier than normal," Davis said. "You have got to get the juices flowing real, real early. That can be hard for some people because some people just aren't morning people. But we don't control things like that, we can only control what we can control. If they say we play football game at 11:20, then we wake up at six and eat breakfast, have a walk through and a few meetings and then it is on the bus and out to the field in time to play ball."
Arkansas will be facing an Ole Miss offense that has shown the ability to play up tempo and score some points this season.
The Rebels are averaging 34 points per game and 440 yards total offense while the Razorbacks are scoring 27 points and averaging 427 yards a contest.
"This type of offense makes you be disciplined football team," Davis said. "You have to stay in your gaps. If you've got a quarterback, you have to have the quarterback. If you get the dive, then you got to have the dive. If you are supposed to be in the B gap, you play the B gap.
"It is a very fast offense so if you don't get down and get lined up and get to your responsibilities, they can hit you for a big play, " Davis added. "Or catch you off guard and get you in bad positions. Whether we are switching personnel running on and off the field or just getting back to the ball, you better be ready because they're snapping the ball as fast as they possibly can."
Both teams are coming off open dates and Davis and Swanson feel like it was a great one for Arkansas.
It allowed them to get a head start on this week with a Sunday practice that was similar to a lengthy one normally held on Tuesdays and Wednesdays.
"It was great," Davis said. "It was little different to come out on Sunday night and practice, but I thought the guys came out and there was a lot of excitement. We look good from the beginning to the end. And I think that's a great start for the week."
Swanson hated just watching the games on Saturday.
"I know a lot of us, talking with some of the guys, it was kind of frustrating for Saturday to be just kind of sitting around not playing a game and watching all the other games going on," Swanson said. So I knew we would be happy to get back out there."
Davis agreed he would rather be playing than watching.
"You see guys that they're making plays, being excited, smiling, having a good time with buddies on the sideline," Davis said. "You are sitting home and having to watch it. It doesn't get boring because you love football, you love to watch it and you love to play it, but then you are like ‘man, we should be playing right now - this sucks.'"
While goals of a conference title and possible run to a national title vanished with the early season losses, Davis says it is key to keep the current momentum going as Arkansas tries to get to a bowl.
"It is very important because you don't want to get on a roll and then take a step back, have a hiccup," Davis said. "That's what's been good about the previous week's practices. Usually during a bye week you can come in and see guys take a step back –which we haven't. We had a great week of practice last week and Sunday turned out to be one of the best practices of the week. I just feel like we need to keep moving forward. No steps back at all."
