If Americans haven't realized it yet, our current president is a huge sports fan, and will once again invite a championship winning team to the White House, this time the Cam Newton-led 2010 Auburn Tigers.

In the afternoon, the President will welcome Auburn University's football team to the White House to honor the team's 2010 BCS National Championship.
