(KSL News) -- A jury has been seated to hear the rape case against two former BYU football players.

BJ Mathis and Ibrahim Rashada are fighting the allegations against them and have rejected the plea deals offered them.

This goes back a year ago, when at an off campus Provo apartment complex a then 17-year old girl told police that the men gave her vodka, showed her a pornographic video and then raped her.

Two other suspects were also charged, but took plea deals and will testify against their former teammates.

Opening arguments will begin in the morning and the trial is expected to take seven days.
