On the heels of renewing her NBC contract that will keep her at Today for an additional three years, Guthrie was given the assignment that will air live during NBC's pre-game coverage. Obama typically has a sit-down with the network broadcasting the Super Bowl every year. Last year, Fox News' Bill O'Reilly sat down with Obama, while CBS News' Scott Pelley got the job the year before that. Matt Lauer conducted NBC's last two pre-Super Bowl presidential interviews. Guthrie last interviewed Obama in September 2013.

NBC's pre-game coverage starts at 1 p.m. ET / 10 a.m. PT Sunday. Will you tune in to the interview?
