 Rape Accusations (2017), Injury Concerns (2015, 2016, 2018)

Anderson missed most of his freshman season in 2015 after suffering a season ending leg injury. In 2016, Anderson sustained another injury in training camp and missed the whole season. He redshirted that season and maintained his eligibility as a sophomore. As a redshirt sophomore in 2017, he finally showed his running ability by putting up very good numbers. He finished with a total of nearly 1500 yards and 20 touchdowns, throwing himself into the conversation of one of the nation's most lethal running backs. He put on a show against Georgia in the semifinals with over 200 yards and two touchdowns. He was an All-Big 12 Second-Teamer, but this year once again his injury problems are back. In the second game of the season against UCLA, Anderson suffered a season ending knee injury, which is becoming all too familiar.
