As many people noted on Twitter last night, Greg Burks, the head referee for the Big 12 crew officiating the College Football Playoff championship game, looks a lot like comedy legend Bob Newhart.

The always sharp Newhart decided to use the chatter in his favor, and tweeted out that he was in fact pursuing a new career as a college football ref.

If the 85-year-old Newhart is going to take credit for Burks' officiating, then it is only fair that Burks take over a few of Newhart's stand-up dates.
