WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama is getting some time in front of the cameras before sitting down to watch the Super Bowl.

He's doing a live interview from the White House with Bill O'Reilly about two hours before kickoff, during the Fox pregame show.

The interview comes less than a week after Obama's State of the Union address, in which he pledged to act to help the middle class if Congress won't.

Obama declined during a recent CNN interview to choose between the Denver Broncos and the Seattle Seahawks in the title game, saying he didn't want to offend either city.

The White House wouldn't say whether anyone besides family is joining Obama to watch the game.
