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

A woman filed an emergency order of protection against Oklahoma Sooners running back Rodney Anderson on Monday and alleged that he raped her on November 16. Anderson's attorney says the woman's allegations are "patently false".

A hearing for the emergency protective order, filed by a woman on Monday, will take place on December 18 at 10 a.m, per a court record.

The petition also states the woman planned on taking an Uber home, but that "Rodney's friends insisted that he take me home". "Mr. Anderson is shocked and disturbed by [the woman's] claims".

She wrote she at first remembered only kissing him and vomiting for about 20 minutes but then recalled being raped after talking to a friend. But, on the weekend of December 2nd, she said she started remembering Anderson forcing himself on her.

OU Athletic Department officials said they are aware of the situation and are gathering information.

An emergency protective order has been issued against Oklahoma star running back Rodney Anderson. "It is incumbent on our community to reserve judgement and to treat this allegation on its own merit". Oklahoma plays Georgia in a national semifinal on January 1.

The Georgia Bulldogs will face off against the Oklahoma Sooners in the Rose Bowl for the College Football Playoff semifinal.

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.
