Honestly neither since I live in Iowa and can barely make it back to Columbus for games.

Technically, a home game for the Bucks is a road game for you!
I'd go with D.C.. Throw in an Orioles game down at the pier Friday or Sunday, Boog's BBQ and cheap microbeers at the game. Done and done.
Yep, unless my good friends who happen to be Rutgers grads wanna go up for that game first, many more options in DC.
Wait... you're saying DC has more options than NYC? I can assure you, that is far from reality. I'm not knocking DC, I quite enjoy it there. But NYC is the city that never sleeps and one has the opportunity to do just about anything there.
Since I live in Northern Virginia, I am pretty damn excited about the Bucks coming to DC. I bet that game doesn't take place at Maryland's stadium the first year- there are an s*** ton of OSU fans in this area and the Terps could easily make bank by moving that game to Fedex where the Redskins play. That is double the capacity for their stadium.
I will definitely make the drive to Rutgers too.
Ugh I haaaate FedEX Field I hope this doesn't happen. But it will.
I hate Fedex too, but Maryland's stadium seems like a high school stadium. It made me chuckle the first time I went there, thinking of the Shoe.
Also plenty of us in North Carolina are planning on making the trip to DC. New Jersey... not so much. But I think I can sell my cohorts on it. Eventually.
Aesculus excellentium cum MCMLXV.
Even though I want to hit the original B1G stadiums first, even Nebraska, I will most likely go to the Maryland game before Rutgers.
For all of you in and around Columbus, Southwest has direct flights to Baltimore out of Port Columbus, daily. With minimal planning/rate watching, you can often get this one hour-long flight for $80-$100 (Even less on sales). College Park is closer to DC, but only about 1/2 hr from Baltimore.
Those who stay will be CHAMPIONS!
Great suggestion - many biz travelers I know in CBus use the SWX flights to BWI as an alternative to often pricier flights into Reagan. I've been flying US Air to Reagan lately, and they've been super competitive, with something like six or seven flights per day. Plus, you don't have to take the train down from BWI.
Either way, D.C. is an easy away game for us in CowTown.
You can also get a private car service relatively inexpensively from BWI to DC, especially when you consider the cost savings vs. flying into DCA. Certainly not as cheap as the train, but you can go from the terminal at BWI to DC in 45 min.
Just say no to italics abuse.
You can also take the MARC from BWI to Union Station for like 6 bucks, which is even cheaper than a car. Or the bus from BWI to Greenbelt metro for like 4 bucks.
For anybody not familiar with the DC area- either BWI or Reagan National offer train transportation methods.
The other airport in the area, Dulles, does not. They're building a metro line to it, but it is years away.
When you check out pricing, stick to BWI or Reagan for easier transport.
LOCK YOUR DOORS! Twice, for good measure...if you selected Rutgers
I'm just happy to be here
Why would you lock your doors?
And we'll drink to old Ohio, 'Til we wobble in our shoes!
Same can be said for College Park.
Rutgers stadium is nothing to be impressed by either. Will they play us at Giants stadium?
I live 20 miles from Byrd Stadium, but I will try and make away games at both schools.

I'd rather go to DC to see the Memorials there after the game. I'd like to make a weekend trip out of it. Anyone know any really good resturants or cool hang out spots in DC?
My wife is from New Jersey...maybe we can go see her parents lol
Or will she be with her parents and you at the game? hahaha
She was a Penn State fan but over the years I've converted her. She'd be at the game with me...her parents can baby sit though lol.
Whichever location hosts the Buckeyes first. I'm 1 hr from Baltimore an 2 hours from Rutgers. Nice!
The only good thing that has come out of my forced move to New Jersey from South Carolina by the U.S. Air Force is the fact that I am now 45 mins from Rutgers and 2 1/2 hrs from College Park. I think that traveling to either location is extremely doable for me...
I'll go to either, or probably both. I have family in Bergen County , and I can get them to go no problem. UMd is a short ride up around the beltway, so that one is easy. But yeah, with a stadium that seats something like 54,000, it will be interesting to see what games they sell out-have to imagine OSU and PSU will be big ones.
