Oklahoma finally puts the nail in the coffin on the Wildcats as Rodney Anderson takes it 22-yards on the touchdown run, giving the Oklahoma the win over K-State 42-35 final.

In the protective order filing, the woman says she was drinking at a bar when she met Anderson for the first time. She says she was planning on taking an Uber home, but Anderson’s friends “were insistent that he take” her home.

The woman says that over the weekend, through a conversation with a friend, she started “recalling images and feelings of him forcing his fingers” insider her and biting her. 

An Oklahoma spokesman said Monday night that the school is aware of the allegation and is gathering information.

As of Tuesday morning, no charges had been filed against Anderson. 

“Mr. Anderson first learned of [the woman’s] request for a civil protective order late yesterday evening,” attorney Derek Chance said in the statement. “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.

“It is incumbent on our community to reserve judgment and to treat this allegation on its own merit. We are confident that when authorities have all of the information surrounding this circumstance, Mr. Anderson will be completely exonerated of any wrongdoing, and he looks forward to the conclusion of this investigation so he can focus on his obligations as a student-athlete.”
