Real comparison: Davis actually finished their new stadium, but after cutting it to the point that it was barely bigger than the old stadium. Their arena is serviceable. They have an opportunity to move, but football has to cause an expansion just to get up to the point where even the WAC might look at them.
Sacramento State proposed a major complex including basketball arena. None of that has broken ground, though a field house at Hornet Stadium is under construction, which if memory serves, probably changes whatever plans they may have had for stadium upgrades. Their "stadium" seating is still the old bleachers Fred Anderson left up from the WLAF and CFL days (substantially larger than what Davis offers, but those generally aren't being filled). Their current arena, well, I had to go into the Alumni building a couple weeks ago to ask for directions for the game I was attending, and the people in there didn't even know where it is.
In terms of CURRENT income generation, the edge certainly goes to Davis, because Sac State's gym might hold 1,200, and they're barely half-filling it for basketball. A lot depends on whether Sac State's capital project actually starts building up in the places where the students voted for it. Even then, Sac has a lot of recruiting to do to make up for past issues.
