NEW YORK, Jan. 15 (UPI) -- The National Football League announced Wednesday Terry McAulay would be the referee for the Super Bowl.

It will be the third NFL title game for McAulay, who is in his 16th season as a game official in the league. He was the referee for New England's win over Philadelphia in 2005 and Pittsburgh's triumph over Arizona in 2009.

This year's Super Bowl will be played Feb. 2 in East Rutherford, N.J.

The rest of the officiating crew will be made up of 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 be the replay official and Brian Matoren will serve as the replay assistant.

The season's highest-rated officials at each position as graded by the NFL are chosen to work the game. A Super Bowl official must have worked at least five years in the NFL and had at least one previous playoff assignment.
