Report: Sooners RB Rodney Anderson had protective order filed against him

A woman who filed an emergency order of protection against Oklahoma Sooners running back Rodney Anderson says that she was raped by Anderson. "Mr. Anderson is shocked and disturbed by [the woman's] claims".

The University of Oklahoma sent Fox 23 News the following statement: "We are aware [of the filing] and are gathering information".

Anderson, through a statement issued by his attorney, says the allegation is "patently false".

Per the Tulsa World, the accuser wrote in a written statement that she met Anderson at a bar on November 16, two days before the Sooners' game at Kansas. While she had meant to take an Uber ride home, the woman, she claimed, allowed Anderson to take her home at the insistence of his friends. A year after Joe Mixon headed to the Sugar Bowl after a videotape of a violent act against a woman was released after being sealed away for much of his playing career, Rodney Anderson is faced with an allegation of rape.

Until then, Anderson is prohibited from having any contact with the alleged victim and to stay away from her residence. He is scheduled to appear in court December 18 for the restraining order hearing.

"A protective order is a civil court order that is created to stop violent and harassing behavior and to protect you and your family from the abuser". However, there are those accused of sexual assault which they unequivocally did not commit - as is the case for Mr. Anderson.

Chance also said that the woman was trying to pursue a relationship with Anderson after November 16 and filed the protective order only after he rebuffed her.

He also added 283 yards and five touchdowns receiving out of the backfield.

Anderson sustained back-to-back season-ending injuries in 2015 and 2016 but broke out with a 147-yard rushing performance at Kansas State on October 21.

No. 2 Oklahoma is set to face No. 3 Georgia in the Rose Bowl New Year's Day, with the victor facing the Clemson-Alabama victor for the right to play for the 2017 College Football Playoff championship.
