People are getting ready for Sunday's big matchup: President Obama vs. Bill O'Reilly.

The conservative Fox News host has the traditional Super Bowl Sunday interview with the president, to be aired during Fox's pre-game show around 4:30 p.m. ET.

The long time host ofThe O'Reilly Factoralso did the honors when Fox last broadcast the Super Bowl in 2011. O'Reilly and the Democratic president jousted over such issues as Egypt, the health care law, and the nation's ideological divides.

"You understand that a lot of Americans feel that you're a big government liberal who wants to intrude on their personal freedom?" O'Reilly told Obama at one point.

Chuckling, Obama said "a lot of folks who watch you, Bill, believe that!"

O'Reilly: "They think (that) way worse than me."

Obama: "I've got to give you credit - you've got a pretty big viewership ... so you're pretty persuasive."

It's the sixth straight year Obama has sat for a Super Bowl day interview. Other hosts have been either evening news or morning show anchors.

Obama spoke with Matt Lauer of NBC'sToday show in 2009, then-CBS Evening Newsanchor Katie Couric in 2010, O'Reilly in 2011, Lauer again in 2012, and currentCBS Evening NewsScott Pelley a year ago.

During the session three years ago, O'Reilly asked Obama a question he said he had also asked of President George W. Bush: "Does it disturb you that so many people hate you?"

Again chuckling, Obama said that, as with any predecessor, "the folks who hate you, they don't know you - what they hate is whatever fun house mirror image of you that's out there ... and so you don't take it personally."
