Tom Petty was honored at a match between the University of Florida Gators and the Louisiana State University Tigers on Saturday, October 6, when his song “I Won’t Back Down” was played at the Ben Hill Griffin Stadium in Gainesville, Florida. The song “We Are the Boys from Old Florida” is normally played at the end of the third quarter, but Petty’s “I Won’t Back Down” was added to commemorate the Gainesville-born musician, who died on October 6 at the age of 66, Sporting News reported. The Tigers won the game 17-16, CBS Sports reported. Credit: Twitter/CodyWorsham via Storyful
