RIP Tom Petty. https://t.co/8akHgv3hKd

The death of music legend Tom Petty left fans across the country heartbroken this past week, especially in Petty's hometown of Gainesville, Florida.

In the second half of Florida's game versus LSU on Saturday, Gators fans paid tribute to Petty by singing along to "I Won't Back Down," one of Petty's hits off his debut solo album, Full Moon Fever, released in 1989.

This was Florida's first game since Petty died Monday at the age of 66 after going into cardiac arrest.
