MISSOULA -- Four hundred people will be called as potential jurors when former University of Montana quarterback Jordan Johnson goes on trial for rape, a Missoula County District Court judge said Tuesday.

Jury selection could take two days because the courtroom in which the trial will be held has a fire code limit of 155 people, Judge Karen Townsend said.

Johnson was charged with sexual intercourse without consent in July. He pleaded not guilty.

He's accused of raping a fellow UM student as they watched a movie at her home in February.

His trial is set for Feb. 8, 2013.
