Photos: Ohio State's Players Autographed "The Chase" Banner Hanging Inside Buckeyes' Football Facility

For roughly two years, a large scarlet banner with white block letters spelling out "The Chase" has hung high on a wall inside Ohio State football's indoor facility, the Woody Hayes Athletic Center. 

The banner was meant to serve as inspiration for what the Buckeyes were pursuing: a conference title and a national championship. 

Ohio State got its Big Ten title in early December with a throttling of Wisconsin, and with the Buckeyes beating No. 1 Alabama in the Sugar Bowl Jan. 1, Urban Meyer's team is now one win away from catching up to what it was seeking. 

Buckeye players have autographed the banner and it has come down from its high perch inside the WHAC.
