Obama to host BCS champions Auburn

President Barack Obama will host Auburn University’s football

team at the White House next week to honor their 2010 championship

season.

Obama will participate in a ceremony April 29 with the players

and coaches, as the president traditionally does with championship

teams. Then Coach Gene Chizik and the Auburn players will conduct a

youth football clinic on the South Lawn. The White House announced

the events Thursday.

Auburn beat Oregon 22-19 in the BCS title game in January.
