MISSOULA, Mont., Feb. 26 (UPI) -- A former star quarterback at the University of Montana has testified the sex he had with a fellow classmate a year ago was entirely consensual.

Jordan Johnson, 20, detailed for jurors in Missoula the extent of his relationship with a coed who later accused him of raping her, ABC Sports reported Tuesday.

Johnson said he and the woman exchanged text messages about classes before they started seeing each other in person.

"She came to my dorm room and I came to her dorm room," he told the court.

Police testified on the night of the alleged incident the woman invited Johnson to her room to watch a movie.

Johnson said the two began kissing on the woman's bed before things went further.

"If she had said stop or no, I would have stopped," he testified.

A month-and-a-half later, the woman reported to police that Johnson raped her.
