MISSOULA, Mont. -

Suspended University of Montana quarterback Jordan Johnson has pleaded not guilty to raping a woman.

The clerk's office for the Missoula District Court says Johnson appeared in court Tuesday morning.

Prosecutors allege Johnson raped an acquaintance in February after she invited him to her room to watch a movie. He has been charged with sexual intercourse without consent.

Attorney Dave Paoli has said Johnson "strongly maintains his innocence."
