What to Know

Get ready for an Atlantic Sun battle as the Jacksonville State Gamecocks and the North Florida Ospreys will face off at 7 p.m. ET Thursday at Pete Mathews Coliseum. Both teams took a loss in their last game, so they'll have plenty of motivation to get the 'W.'

The game between Jacksonville State and the Bellarmine Knights on Saturday was not particularly close, with the Gamecocks falling 75-62.

Meanwhile, 2023 "welcomed" North Florida with an 82-57 beatdown courtesy of the Florida Gulf Coast Eagles on Saturday.

Barring any buzzer beaters, Jacksonville State is expected to win a tight contest. They have failed bettors playing the spread in their past five games, so buyers beware.

Jacksonville State is now 7-10 while North Florida sits at 7-9. The Gamecocks are 4-5 after losses this season, the Ospreys 5-3.
