How will President Barack Obama look holding up a No. 15 Alabama jersey?

Find out next week.

The White House announced Thursday that Obama will honor Alabama's 2012 BCS championship team Wednesday in a ceremony scheduled to begin at 2:05 p.m.

Alabama coach Nick Saban and All-America lineman Barrett Jones presented Obama with a No. 14 jersey and helmet last year to commemorate the program's 14th national championship. This will be the third White House invitation for many Crimson Tide players and the fourth for Saban, who went following LSU's title in 2003.

This will be the fifth consecutive college football champion from the Southeastern Conference that Obama will have recognized and the fourth straight from the state of Alabama, with Auburn having won the 2010 title.
