Super Bowl XLVIII is just under two weeks away, but we have now learned the officiating crew that will be responsible for correctly calling the biggest game of the year. On Tuesday, it was announced that referee Terry McAulay will be leading the seven-man officiating crew at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey on Super Bowl Sunday.
This will be the third consecutive Super Bowl that McAulay has called.
The rest of the officiating staff on Feb. 2 will include Carl Paganelli (umpire), Jim Mello (head linesman), Tom Symonette (line judge), Scott Steenson (field judge), Dave Wyant (side judge) and Steve Freeman (back judge).
Earnie Frantz will serve as the replay official, with Brian Matoren as the replay assistant.
Pagnelli and McAulay have previously worked together during a Super Bowl assignment and it will be the fourth Super Bowl that Pagnelli has been a part of.
McAulay’s crew will have a combined 110 years of NFL officiating experience, which included 76 combined playoff game assignments.
