Oklahoma Sooners running back Rodney Anderson reportedly had a protective order filed against him on Monday in Cleveland County. As she attempted to leave, the woman claims Anderson followed her.

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

In the protective order filing, the woman says she was drinking at a bar on November 16 when she met Anderson for the first time. She said she was planning on going home alone, but Anderson took her home.

"There are undoubtedly true victims of sexual assault, for whom Mr. Anderson carries a tremendous amount of compassion".

In the statement, Chance said the woman filed the protective order after she had attempted to pursue a relationship with Anderson and Anderson "declined several social invitations" from the woman.

No charges have been filed against Anderson at this point, and a Norman police investigation is ongoing.

Taggart is also known for bringing in elite recruiting classes and knows the Florida circuit as well as anyone. Despite stabilizing a handful couple of programs, FSU's next head coach boasts a 47-50 overall record.

"Mr. Anderson first learned of [the woman's] request for a civil protective order late yesterday evening", Chance said.

Anderson's attorney has responded to the allegations saying they are "patently false". A hearing has been set for December 18 to determine if the protective order will be allowed to continue. However, there are those accused of sexual assault which they unequivocally did not commit - as is the case for Mr. Anderson. It is incumbent on our community to reserve judgment and to treat this allegation on its own merit.

Chance also said that the woman was trying to pursue a relationship with Anderson after November 16 and filed the protective order only after he rebuffed her.

As a result of this situation, Anderson's availability to play when Oklahoma plays Georgia on New Year's Day in one of the College Football Playoff national semifinal games is in doubt. He has 1,041 yards from scrimmage and 14 touchdowns over the past six games.

Anderson is OU's leading rusher with 960 yards and 11 touchdowns. Mixon is now with the NFL's Cincinnati Bengals.
