Oklahoma RB Rodney Anderson facing rape allegation

University of Oklahoma football star Rodney Anderson is the subject of sexual assault allegations made by a woman who filed for an emergency order of protection against him Monday night.

Derek Chance, Anderson's Oklahoma City-based attorney, called the allegations "patently false" in a statement released Tuesday to the Tulsa World.

Charges have not yet been filed against Anderson but he was reportedly ordered to pay the court costs in the protective order filing, and a hearing has been scheduled for December 18th. Oklahoma played at Kansas two days later. "Some consensual kissing occurred after that contact", Jensen said.

Oklahoma has yet to make any decisions regarding Anderson's status.

The woman, 23, said she first met Anderson at a bar on November 16.

UCF hires Missouri offensive coordinator Josh Heupel as head coach
UCF is also bringing in former Miami and Florida coach Randy Shannon as the defensive coordinator, according to Bruce Feldman . He led the team to become 13th in the nation in total offense in his first year with the program from 124th the previous year.


The woman claims she went to a second bar with Anderson and planned on taking an Uber home, but, "Rodney's friends insisted that he take me home".

While the woman indicated she did not initially remember what happened, she said a conversation she had with a friend over the weekend led to her "recalling images and feelings of (Anderson) forcing his fingers" inside her and biting her. She stated she was "not feeling like I could say anything, and trying to get away from him to put clothes on".

"He followed me asking what I thought I was doing", the woman wrote in the petition. "He knows where I live and I'm scared for my safety".

"Mr. Anderson first learned of (the) request for a civil protective order late yesterday evening", Chance's statement reads.

The Associated Press does not identify people who say they have been sexually assaulted without their permission to publish their name.
