Florida Fans Rock Out To Tom Petty’s ‘I Won’t Back Down’ Before LSU Game


October 7, 2017

The coolest moment from Week 6 on the college gridiron had absolutely nothing to do with football.

Prior to fourth quarter of the No. 21 Florida Gators’ 17-16 loss against the LSU Tigers on Saturday, fans at Ben Hill Griffin Stadium — which seats nearly 90,000 people — sang “I Won’t Back Down” by Tom Petty And The Heartbreakers. It was a pretty cool tribute to Petty, who died Tuesday from cardiac arrest.

Watch “The Swamp” rock out in the video below:

And here’s a view of the whole crowd:

Of course, hearing Petty’s voice echoing through a huge stadium is nothing out of the ordinary. One of The Rock and Roll Hall of Famer’s most famous performances came in 2008 during halftime of Super Bowl XLII.
