Barack Obama, Bill O'Reilly Super Bowl Interview Scheduled For FOX Pregame Show

More: Super Bowl 2012 coverage.

President Barack Obama is scheduled to join the FOX pregame show ahead of Super Bowl XLV, sitting down with Bill O'Reilly shortly before the game gets underway. FOX describes the interview as a no-spin zone, with Obama and O'Reilly engaging in candid conversation. It wouldn't be the Super Bowl without a bit of politics mixed in.

The biggest question remaining has nothing at all to do with politics. Instead, the people want to know which team Obama favors, and whether or not he'll predict a winner ahead of Sunday's Super Bowl. Will Obama, a Chicago native and Bears fan, stick with the NFC and pick the Green Bay Packers, a Chicago rival? Or will he choose the Pittsburgh Steelers out of spite, rooting for a Green Bay loss? There's even a prop bet on potential Obama picks.

According to Sports Illustrated's Richard Deitsch, Obama is scheduled to join the pregame show between 4:30 and 5 p.m. on FOX.
