The NFL announced Wednesday that Terry McAulay will referee his third Super Bowl on February 2 at MetLife Stadium.

McAulay previously called Super Bowls XXXIX and XLIII. He has also officiated six conference championship games in his 16 years as an NFL official. His crew called the fourth fewest penalties during the 2013 regular season, according to ESPN.

The NFL also revealed the names of McAulay’s Super Bowl XLVIII crew: Carl Paganelli (umpire), Jim Mello (head linesman), Tom Symonette (line judge), Scott Steenson (field judge), Dave Wyant (side judge) and Steve Freeman (back judge).
