      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.
