Wilson and Tide Look to Carry Enthusiasm into Saturday's Game

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) - John Parker Wilson remembers the cheers, surging in volume with every completion.

Number 16 Alabama's quarterback remembers the silence, too. A collective, hold-your-breath stillness every time he needed to call the next play.

What he doesn't remember about that game-winning touchdown drive against Arkansas was feeling the pressure even with 92,000 fans putting their hopes on his shoulders.

He said he doesn't feel intense pressure to score, he just tries to go out and win the game.

Now, Wilson and the Crimson Tide (3-0, 2-0 Southeastern Conference) are hoping to carry the excitement and confidence from a 41-38 win over Arkansas over into Saturday night's game with Number 22 Georgia (2-1, 0-1).
