Urban Meyer and the Ohio State Buckeyes will play in the first-ever College Football Playoff. However, the Buckeyes' journey to the top certainly wasn't an easy one.

After falling to Michigan State in last year's Big Ten championship game, OSU began this season with a blow as the Buckeyes' lost All-Big Ten quarterback Braxton Miller for the year. Meyer's team fell to Virgina Tech in the second game of the 2014 season, which many people believed would ultimately leave them out of the playoff.

That wasn't the case as Ohio State ran off 11 straight wins, including a 59-0 blowout victory over Wisconsin in this year's Big Ten championship game, which earned the Buckeyes a spot in the College Football Playoff.

The following hype video chronicles the Buckeyes' journey.

Enjoy, Ohio State fans!
