Noman police say they interviewed OU running back Rodney Anderson Tuesday and he is cooperating with investigators

An emergency protective order was issued against Oklahoma running back Rodney Anderson on Monday in Cleveland County (Okla.) District Court, accusing him of rape.

The Oklahoman reported that Anderson denies the rape claim and contends that the accusation is being made because "he rejected the woman's attempts to pursue a relationship with him".

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

The woman who filed the order wrote in a court statement that she met Anderson at a bar on November 16 for the first time. She said she was planning on going home alone, but Anderson took her home.

The petition says Anderson, 21, walked the woman home after meeting her for the first time at a bar and drinking. The alleged victim said she tried to get away from Anderson so she could get dressed, but he followed her and asked what she was doing.

Clemson, Alabama matchup a 'home run' for Allstate Sugar Bowl
It was down to the Tide and the Buckeyes (11-2) for the final spot and the committee ultimately went with Nick Saban's squad. Favoring a one-loss team without any substantial wins costs the fans more than it even costs the Buckeyes in the long term.

Oklahoma running back Rodney Anderson is the subject of a sexual assault investigation, according to documents obtained by DieHards Tuesday morning.

According to Oklaw.org, the state of Oklahoma defines a protective order as "a civil court order that is created to stop violent and harassing behavior and to protect you and your family from the abuser".

Anderson's attorney has responded to the allegations saying they are "patently false". "However, there are those accused of sexual assault which they unequivocally did not commit - as is the case for Mr. Anderson".

An online case record says Cleveland County District Court Judge Jequita Napoli will hold a hearing on December 18. Over the past seven games, he has gained 1,134 yards from scrimmage - rushing and receiving - and scored 14 touchdowns. This season, Anderson assumed the spot in the Sooners' backfield previously held by Joe Mixon, who was suspended for the entire 2014 season after he punched a woman at a Norman restaurant.

Anderson, who leads the Sooners with 960 yards and 11 touchdowns, has not been charged with a crime.
