For the second straight bowl season, Oklahoma has a running back that has been accused of doing unspeakable to a woman. 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.

Anderson has been accused of rape from an incident at a bar on November 16. A hearing for an emergency protective order has been scheduled for December 18. As of this moment, no charges have been filed against Anderson. A lawyer for Anderson has defended his client by stating the allegation is “patently false.”

According to a protective order filing, the woman accusing Anderson claims she was drinking at a bar and was intending to take an Uber ride home. Instead, Anderson allegedly insisted on taking her home. She later then tried recalling the events of the evening with a friend and remembered various sexual acts being performed on her by Anderson. As she attempted to leave, the woman claims Anderson followed her.

A lawyer representing Anderson called the allegation false and sais Anderson “will be exonerated of any wrongdoing.”

Anderson leads Oklahoma this season with 960 rushing yards and 11 touchdowns. Oklahoma officials have confirmed they are aware of the situation and are in the process of gathering information. For now, there has been no change to Anderson’s status with the program in the early stages of this story.

The incident allegedly took place two days before Oklahoma played a road game at Kansas, which has been famous for quarterback Baker Mayfield’s crotch-grabbing gesture toward Kansas players.

Oklahoma will face Georgia in the Rose Bowl for a College Football Playoff semifinal game on January 1.
