Oklahoma running back Rodney Anderson is now publicly defending himself against allegations of rape that appeared in a victim's protection order Tuesday morning.

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.

The woman alleges that she had just met Anderson on the night in question, and was going to hire an Uber to pick her up, but Anderson's friends were "insistent" that she go with him.

Anderson is now not facing charges, and a hearing is set for December 18. He also has 16 receptions for 283 yards and five scores for No. 2 Oklahoma, which will face No. 3 Georgia in a College Football Playoff semifinal game at the Rose Bowl on January 1.

According to The Oklahoman, the accuser, who wrote in her statement that she is "scared" for her safety because Anderson knows where she lives, is a University of Oklahoma employee.

The woman said she later recalled incidents she say happened inside her apartment, including forceful contact and biting. As of now, Anderson is still a member of the team. She also claims that Anderson bit her, and that when she tried to put clothes on and leave, Anderson asked her what she was doing.

A trooper spotted the red Mercury around 4 p.m. near Taft Road and Route 11 in North Syracuse and stopped the auto . The officer pulled the vehicle over and took Rodriguez into custody without incident, the sheriff's office said.

The Washington Post does not normally name the victims of sexual assault.

Oklahoma officials have confirmed they are aware of the situation and are in the process of gathering information.

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

Anderson's attorney has responded to the allegations saying they are "patently false".

Anderson, a redshirt sophomore, is the Sooners' leading rusher with 960 yards, and he's racked up 11 touchdowns. Oklahoma plays Georgia in a national semifinal on January 1. 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.
