Florida Gators fans honor hometown legend Tom Petty with ‘I Won’t Back Down’ tribute

Rock legend Tom Petty passed away on Monday night, and Gators fans did a great job of honoring him during Saturday’s game against LSU.

Petty was born in Gainesville, so the Gators crowd paid tribute to him by singing “I Won’t Back Down.” They did a pretty good job of it, too.

John Daly and Gavin DeGraw did a similar tribute on Thursday, although they weren’t as loud.
