Oklahoma Sooners' Lead Running Back Accused Of Rape

Anderson didn't learn of the protection order filed against him until late Monday evening, according to his attorney.

According to ESPN.com's Jake Trotter, Anderson said in a statement through his attorney that the allegations are "patently false".

In the protecting order filing, the woman said she was drinking at a bar on November 16 when she met Anderson. The plan was for her to take an Uber home, but "Rodney's friends insisted that he take me home".

Norman police say they interviewed OU running back Rodney Anderson Tuesday and he is cooperating with investigators.

The school said Monday it is aware of the ongoing Norman police investigation.

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.

Chiefs' Kelce with two quick, huge touchdowns
Meanwhile, New York kept its faint playoff hopes alive by snapping a two-game skid and holding on to a fourth-quarter lead. It's apparently a coach's decision and something that will surely come up in Todd Bowles' press conference after the game.

She continues on to say, "This weekend, I was talking to a friend about the night and started recalling images and feeling sick, him biting me and me not feeling like I could say anything, and trying to get away from him to put clothes on, but he followed me asking what I thought I was doing". While we can only speculate as to [the woman's] motives in seeking a civil protective order, her claims surfaced only after Mr. Anderson did not reciprocate a desire to pursue a relationship with [the woman]. The allegations are patently false. "Mr. Anderson is shocked and disturbed by [the woman's] claims", it read.

The woman described herself in the petition as a "victim of rape" based on an alleged incident early on the 16th after she and Anderson met at a bar.

As far as presenting any evidence or testimony, that happens during the hearing scheduled by the judge. "However, there are those accused of sexual assault which they unequivocally did not commit - as is the case for Mr. Anderson". It is incumbent on our community to reserve judgment and to treat this allegation on its own merit.

Anderson, who leads the Sooners with 960 yards and 11 touchdowns, has not been charged with a crime.

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.
