ORLANDO - Bill O'Reilly will have a rematch with President Obama before Super Bowl XLVIII.

The Fox News host announced Saturday night at his "Bolder-Fresher Tour" show stop here that he will be interviewing the president prior to Fox's live broadcast of the game on Feb. 2.

O'Reilly interviewed the president before the Super Bowl in 2011. This would be his third interview with Obama.

O'Reilly told a crowd of about 2,500 at the Bob Carr Performing Arts Centre that the details were not final and he was not sure if the interview would be aired live or taped. He said he secured the interview with Obama with a handshake before his appearance to at the Kennedy Center Honors late last month. He said he plans to make an official announcement during Fox News' "The O'Reilly Factor" later this week.

O'Reilly is touring with comedian, "Saturday Night Live" alum and former Monday Night Football co-host Dennis Miller. When asked to make a prediction on Sunday's AFC and NFC title games, Miller deferred to O'Reilly, whom he said hasn't missed an NFL playoff pick in the "four years that I've know him."

O'Reilly has worked in Boston and Denver and went with New England in the AFC Championship Game. He's picking the Patriots over the Broncos because they "have three monster running backs" who will help them keep the ball away from Peyton Manning.

Presumably, he means Stevan Ridley, LeGarrette Blount and Shane Vereen. He likes the Seahawks over the 49ers in the NFC showdown because "they are quick."

As for Miller, he responded to the question with a comparison to the launch of the president's health care plan, saying it went about as as smooth as "Tony Romo rolling out to his left."
