For the second straight season, an all-Black officiating crew will work a Pac-12 football game when Washington hosts Washington State in the Apple Cup on Friday, Nov. 26.

Last year, the Pac-12 made history at the Stanford-UCLA game with its first ever all-Black officiating crew to work a Pac-12 football game. 

The crew for the 2021 Apple Cup will consist of the following officials:

  • Michael Mothershed — Referee
  • Matt Jordan — Umpire
  • Darryl Johnson — Head Line Judge
  • Cravonne Barrett — Line Judge
  • Gary Reed — Side Judge
  • Michael Hall — Field Judge
  • Anthony Little — Back Judge
  • Michael Marsh — Center Judge
  • Judson Howard — Instant Replay Official (IR1)
  • Cleo Robinson — Instant Replay Official (IR2)
  • Michael Stephens — Alternate Official
  • Charles Stewart — Line of Scrimmage Position Supervisor
  • Neely Dunn — Game Evaluator

Mothershed, Johnson, Reed, Hall, Little, Marsh, Howard, Robinson and Stephens were also part of the officiating crew for the Stanford-UCLA game last season.
