Florida Gators fans paid tribute to Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Tom Petty, who passed away on Oct. 2, by belting a classic Petty song, “I Won’t Back Down,” during the game against the LSU Tigers this past weekend.
Not only was Petty a Gainesville, Florida native, but he, according to floridagators.com, “once worked as a groundskeeper at the University of Florida.”
On top of the tribute video above, here’s another view of the special moment.

While the Gators ended up losing to the Tigers by the score of 17-16, this was, by far, one of the best moments of the game.
