Oklahoma Sooners' Lead Running Back Accused Of Rape

Adjust Comment Print

A woman filed a protective order Monday against Oklahoma running back Rodney Anderson, the leading rusher for the College Football Playoff-bound Sooners.

The Oklahoman reported that Anderson denies the rape claim and contends that the accusation is being made because "he rejected the woman's attempts to pursue a relationship with him".

OU officials said Monday night the school was aware and gathering more information.

The woman claimed in her filing that the alleged incident took place on November 16 after a night of drinking, but she did not remember what happened until speaking with a friend this past weekend, ESPN reported. She says she was planning on taking an Uber home, but Anderson's friends "were insistent that he take" her home. 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.

According to the filing, the woman said she tried to get away and put her clothes on, but Anderson followed her and asked what she was doing.

No charges had been filed as of Tuesday morning, but a hearing was scheduled for December 18.

"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", the statement reads. It is incumbent on our community to reserve judgment and to treat this allegation on its own merit.

Anderson now leads the Sooners with 960 yards rushing and 11 touchdowns on the ground. He also has 16 catches for 283 yards and five scores. The woman claims they went to a second bar with Anderson. 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.
