NORMAN, Okla. (AP) A woman who accused Oklahoma running back Rodney Anderson of sexual assault says she's dropping her protective order against him.

The woman also says authorities' handling of her case has diminished her faith in the justice system.

The woman's comments came in a statement released Friday by an organization that advocates for victims of sexual abused by athletes. She says prosecutors projected bias during a Thursday news conference where they announced that Anderson would not face criminal charges.

Cleveland County District Attorney Greg Mashburn declined to respond to the woman's statement.

Anderson's attorney has called the accusation "patently false."

Anderson leads the Sooners with 960 yards rushing and 11 touchdowns and has 283 yards and five touchdowns receiving. Oklahoma plays Georgia in a College Football Playoff semifinal Jan. 1 in the Rose Bowl.
