Bob Newhart's doppelgänger refereed the Ohio State-Oregon game


Last night's college football national championship game between Ohio State and Oregon was notable not just for the domination of Buckeyes running back Ezekiel Elliott, but also for the uncanny resemblance a referee had to comedy legend Bob Newhart.

Twitter users following the game quickly pointed out the similarities between the game's head referee Greg Burks and the 85-year-old star of classics like The Bob Newhart Show.

The similarities are undeniable — Burks essentially is Newhart, perhaps after a few hundred pushups.
