A petition for a protective order against University of Oklahoma redshirt sophomore running back Rodney Anderson has been filed in Cleveland County District Court.

In the protective order, which was obtained by the Oklahoman's Brooke Pryor, the woman says the incident took place after she met Anderson and his friends at a bar on November 16, two days before the Sooners' game at Kansas. The plan was for her to take an Uber home, but "Rodney's friends insisted that he take me home". Last weekend, she said, she started recalling graphic sexual details from what transpired later that night.

A hearing date has been set: December 18 at 10:00 a.m. He also has 16 receptions for 283 yards and five scores for No. 2 Oklahoma, which will face No. 3 Georgia in a College Football Playoff semifinal game at the Rose Bowl on January 1.

"There are undoubtedly true victims of sexual assault, for whom Mr. Anderson carries a tremendous amount of compassion". She says she tried to get away to put clothes on, but he followed her and asked what she was doing.

The emergency protective order was filed and issued Monday, with the woman writing "I remember feeling like I couldn't get away".

A University of Oklahoma spokesman said that the university is investigating the matter. The allegations are patently false. "Mr. Anderson is shocked and disturbed by [the woman's] claims". He also caught 16 passes for 283 yards and five touchdowns and was extremely potent during the final six weeks of the regular season, gaining 1,041 yards from scrimmage and scoring 14 touchdowns.

The Sooners are fortunate that that they have two highly talented running backs like Sermon and Adams to bring in if Anderson is unavailable to play.

Anderson's attorney, Derek Chance, released a statement saying the rape accusation is untrue.

Anderson is the Sooners' leading rusher, averaging nearly 6.0 yards per carry with 960 yards rushing and 11 touchdowns. The Cincinnati Bengals selected Mixon in the second round of this year's draft.
