A woman has accused a star running back for the University of Oklahoma of rape, according to a protective order filed Monday.

According to the description of incident (s) in the protective order, the woman says the alleged incident occurred on November 16.

She said that she initially planned to take an Uber home; however, she said Anderson's friends were adamant he would take her home. A hearing has been scheduled for December 18 at 10:00 am.

"We are aware [of the filing] and are gathering information."

According to ESPN, Anderson, through a statement issued by his attorney, says the allegation is "patently false".

The woman who filed the order says that Anderson sexually assaulted her on November 16.

The statement alleges Anderson then followed the woman and asked her what she thought she was doing.

"Mr. Anderson first learned of (the woman's) request for a civil protective order Monday evening". Mr. Anderson did not, nor would he ever, force himself on any woman.

Oklahoma running back Rodney Anderson is the subject of a sexual assault investigation, according to documents obtained by DieHards Tuesday morning. It is incumbent on our community to reserve judgment and to treat this allegation on its own merit.

Oklahoma is set to play against Georgia in the Rose Bowl on January 1, 2018, as one of the two College Football Playoff semifinals.

Anderson is the leading running back for the Sooners this season with 960 yards and 11 touchdowns.

The move comes just weeks before the University of Oklahoma faces off against Georgia in the Rose Bowl on New Year's Day.
