Big Sky officials to work Bison-Bearkats title game

HELENA, Mont. — A crew of Big Sky Conference officials is working Saturday's FCS national championship game in Frisco, Texas.

The league announced Friday that Gregg Wilson will referee the game between top-ranked and defending national champion North Dakota State and Sam Houston State, which beat three Big Sky teams to advance to the title game.

The game kicks off at noon on ESPN2.

Doug Toole, coordinator of football officials for the Big Sky, says it's an honor to have a crew from the conference working the title game.

Wilson's crew includes umpire Chuck Butterfield, head linesman Terry White, line judge Rod Ammari, field judge David Clark, side judge Robert Holloway and back judge Jeff Rink.

The Big Sky had two crews working throughout the playoffs and Toole selected the top officials from the two crews for the championship game.
