Here's a look at the throwback uniforms the Buckeyes will wear.

It looks like Ohio State's return to St. John Arena will come with a little old-school flair as a throwback jersey, presumably for Friday night's game against Cleveland State, surfaced on Snapchat Monday afternoon.

The jersey, with the script "Buckeye" lettering seems to pay homage to the uniforms worn by the 1980 team, featuring Ohio State great Clark Kellogg.

The team returns to St. John Arena for the first time since 2010, and Friday's game against Cleveland State will be the first sellout in the historic arena since March 24, 2008 – an NIT game against California.

Since the Buckeyes moved to the nearby Schottenstein Center as their official home court, they're a perfect 5-0 in games played in St. John Arena, and they'll look to improve upon that record against the Vikings.
