Interesting conundrum; if you believe in analytics then Jacksonville wins the game. If you believe in what happens on the court (comparative scores), then KSU starts off the season tied for first in the ASUN.
The case for analytics:
Sagarin says JAX (229) beats KSU (307) by 2.5 points.
Massey says this is a 50/50 game, but when forced to make a call says JAX (238) beats KSU (292) by 1 point, 67-66.
Pomeroy sees this as JAX (226) vs KSU (271)
NCAA Net sees this as JAX (149) vs KSU (260)
The case for on court comparison:
Jax and KSU have had 2 common opponents. They each went 2-0, but KSU had a larger margin of victory against each team.
In the all important Carver matchup, both teams scored more than twice as many points as Carver. KSU won by 59 points, while JAX won a 53 point squeaker.
Against Chareleston Southern, KSU won by 37 points, while JAX won by 11.
Jacksonville's last game was cancelled becasue of Covid in the Dolphins program. KSU was missing 2 players in their last game; as I write this the only explanation was "we didn't have some guys tonight."
The most likely outcome is that this game gets postponed becasue of Covid.
