The New Year’s Six bowl games continue on Monday as the No. 16 Tulane Green Wave will meet the No. 10 USC Trojans in the Cotton Bowl at 1 p.m. ET. The game will take place at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, TX, and will air on ESPN.

Here is the referee crew that has been assembled for the 2022 Cotton Bowl, who all come from the SEC Conference:

Referee: Steve Marlowe
Umpire: Russ Pulley
Head Lines: Randall Kizer
Line Judge: Chad Lorance
Field Judge: Raymond Tate
Side Judge: Jesse Dupuy
Back Judge: Dax Hill
Center Judge: Jason McArthur
Alternates: Kyle Olson
Replay: Bryant Thompson
Communicator: Crathman Stephens

Tulane (11-2) experienced one of the biggest turnarounds in college football history, going from 2-10 the season prior to cracking double-digit wins and securing the AAC championship. The Green Wave were powered by dynamic running back Tyjae Spears as well quarterback Michael Pratt this season, stumbling just twice en route to claiming the Group of Five’s New Year’s Six bowl bid. This will be the program’s first appearance in a major bowl game since the 1940 Sugar Bowl.

USC (11-2) roared back into national relevancy in year one of the Lincoln Riley era, making the Pac-12 Championship Game and falling just short of a spot in the College Football Playoff. The team was powered by transfer quarterback Caleb Williams, who secured the Heisman Trophy with over 4,000 passing yards and 47 total touchdowns. Edge rusher Tuli Tuipulotu secured Pac-12 Defensive Player of the Year honors with 12.5 sacks for the season.

USC enters the matchup as a 2-point favorite on DraftKings Sportsbook with the total installed at 63.5.
