United States Vice President Joe Biden spoke to Syracuse University students and school officials on Thursday and discussed sexual assault issues with the "It's on Us" campaign" but also took a few moments to talk about the upcoming Clemson-Syracuse game.
"This Saturday when you play No. 1 Clemson, you get up there and yell," Biden said.
"I promised them I'd be wearing orange — northern Syracuse Orange," he said. "I'll tell you what. I'm looking for an upset."
Clemson senior offensive guard Eric Mac Lain introduced Vice President Joe Biden on Tuesday afternoon at Clemson as Biden discussed his support of the national “It’s on us” campaign which is a White House initiative to end sexual assault on university campuses by mobilizing college students.
It’s On Us pledge has over 250,000 students that have already pledged:
To intervene instead of being a bystander.
To recognize that any time consent is not – or cannot – be given, it is sexual assault and it is a crime.
To do everything you can to create an environment where sexual assault is unacceptable, and all survivors are supported.
Biden signed the Clemson football helmet the following on Tuesday: "To Eric and the No. 1 team in the nation. Keep it going. Joe Biden 11-10-15."
