One of the highlights from the weekend's round of college football games came from the Florida Gators' incredible tribute to late rock star Tom Petty, who passed at the age of 66 years old after he suffered a cardiac arrest last week. 90,000 fans in the packed Ben Hill Griffin Stadium joined in singing "I Won't Back Down" between third and fourth quarters during their game against LSU Tigers and the tribute is sure to give you chills.
Video of the tribute hit Twitter and quickly went viral. The goosebump-inducing clip looks as if every fan in the stadium knows the lyrics. Petty is a native of Gainsville and actually worked on the grounds crew at the University of Florida. Watch below:
