2020-21 bowl games

2020-21 bowl officiating assignments

Officiating crew assignments for the 2020-21 bowl games.



Football Zebras is obtaining the officiating assignments to the 2020-21 bowl games and reporting them here.

In a normal year, the Power Five conferences receive five bowls, other conferences receive three, with a fourth assignment rotated annually. Several bowls scheduled for this season have been canceled due to the coronavirus pandemic.

For the tables listed below, all times are Eastern, and the conference that assigns the officials for each game is listed in italics. Crew assignments will be added as we receive them, although some conferences will only release crew information on the day of the game. Of course, any game is subject to cancelation, and we will include officials that earned bowl games that were canceled when those are known. Additionally, assignments may change due to testing and precautionary measures.

The following symbols appear for on-field officials:

  • indicates officials that are currently in the NFL development pool, either by appearing on the preseason development roster or by working a college all-star game since 2018.
  • worked a New Year’s 6 bowl game or the National Championship in 2019-20.
  • worked in the Alliance of American Football (2019) and/or the XFL (2020).
