The assignments for the championship title games referees are now set. Football Zebras announced last week that Tony Corrente and Gene Steratore were heading these crews, and Fox Sports analyst Mike Pereira has determined the games they are working. The announcement was made on Fox Football Daily on Fox Sports 1.
Corrente will be in Denver for the Patriots-Broncos game, working his 13th postseason assignment and his fourth conference championship. (He also worked five wild card playoffs, 3 divisional playoffs, and Super Bowl XLI.)
Steratore will in Seattle for the 49ers-Seahawks game, working his seventh postseason assignment and his second conference championship. (He also worked two wild card playoffs and three divisional playoffs.)
The full crews are not yet known, however it appears that Steratore will have his umpire, Bill Schuster, in Seattle. The crews will be posted here when we confirm them.
We have one more game to figure out. (Not counting the Pro Bowl, but we will post that assignment, too.) Who do you think is this year’s Super Bowl referee?
