A suspended Northern Illinois linebacker has pleaded not guilty to intentionally knocked down a member of the University of Toledo marching band.
20-year-old Jamaal Bass is facing a misdemeanor assault charge.
Video of the November incident at the Glass Bowl appears to show Bass jumping shoulder-first into the face of a band member and knocking over another.
If convicted he could get 9 years in prison.
