TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) - It's your first Iron Bowl. You'll
remember it forever. Some fans will, too.
Alabama quarterback John Parker Wilson has some advice for his Auburn counterpart and first-time Iron Bowl participant Kodi Burns.
Don't think of it that way. Wilson said a starting quarterback shouldn't make the game bigger than it is.
The Tigers enter Saturday's Iron Bowl with a 5-6 record. Burns is fresh from his first start against Georgia, but that came at home - in a loss. He figures the reception and treatment at Bryant-Denny Stadium will be similar to that he received when he returned to his home state to face Arkansas as a freshman.
Burns is a mobile quarterback with 405 rushing yards and a team-high five touchdowns.
Wilson has guided the Tide to an 11-oh record and a No. 1 ranking. He is 0-for-2 as a starter against Auburn. Kickoff is 2:30 p.m. (C-D-T) at Bryant-Denny Stadium. CBS has the telecast.
