ESPN's Jake Trotter reports that an unnamed woman who filed an emergency order of protection against Oklahoma Sooners running back Rodney Anderson is accusing him of sexual assault. Through an attorney-issued statement, Anderson said the allegation by the woman is "patently false." Brooke Pryor of NewsOK reports that Anderson was "falsely accused of rape after he rejected a woman's attempts to pursue a relationship with him." "Mr. Anderson did not, nor would he ever, force himself on any woman," said Anderson's attorney, Derek Chance.

Mr. Anderson is shocked and disturbed by [the woman's] claims. Mr. Anderson did not, nor would he ever, force himself on any woman. There are undoubtedly true victims of sexual assault, for whom Mr. Anderson carries a tremendous amount of compassion. However, there are those accused of sexual assault which they unequivocally did not commit -- as is the case for Mr. Anderson.

Trotter further reports that the woman, "through a conversation with a friend," began "recalling images and feelings of him forcing his fingers" inside her. Anderson has not been charged. A hearing is set for Dec. 18.
