On Saturday, Ben Hill Griffin Stadium in Gainesville, Florida witnessed how much the Tom Petty fans loved the rockstar.
Between the third and fourth quarters of the Florida Gators taking on the LSU Tigers, the entire stadium sang Tom Petty’s ‘I Won’t Back Down’ to pay tribute to the legendary musician, reports The Hollywood Reporter.
“This one’s for you, @TomPetty,” the Gators’ official account tweeted.
