A protective order has been filed against Oklahoma leading rusher Rodney Anderson.

The victim said the next day she remembered kissing him and vomiting that night, but the weekend of December 2 she started remembering Anderson forcing himself on her and her attempts to get away from him and put clothes on.

As of Tuesday morning, no charges had been filed against Anderson. After drinking at two locations, she said his friends were insistent that Anderson take her home. She says she tried to get away to put clothes on, but he followed her and asked what she was doing. 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. "He knows where I live and I'm scared for my safety".

"We're aware and are gathering more information", Oklahoma football spokesman Michael Houck told the Oklahoman.

Mr. Anderson first learned of (the woman's) request for a civil protective order late yesterday evening. "Mr. Anderson is shocked and disturbed by [the woman's] claims". The allegations are patently false. However, there are those accused of sexual assault which they unequivocally did not commit - as is the case for Mr. Anderson. Anderson is due in court on December 18, two weeks before the Sooners' College Football Playoff semifinal game against Georgia.

Anderson has been an integral part to the Sooners' 12-1 season and College Football Playoff semi-final appearance.
