Florida to pay tribute to Tom Petty vs. LSU
After the traditional rendition of We Are The Boys going into the fourth quarter, the Gators will play "I won't back down" by Tom Petty

I got chills already just thinking about it.

Go Gators!

If true, this will be a great tribute to hear 90,000 sing along. I watched the 30th anniversary concert in Gainesville, last night. Hard to believe he is dead. RIP

Hopefully it catches on and becomes a permanent tradition.

I love "Running down a dream" which CBS played when Danny was a sr and we were playing UT in the rain.

My favorite Petty song was always "learning to fly but I ain't got wings". Hell that could be Felipe's theme song this year.

I wish I could’ve experienced that. I totally hope that becomes a tradition.

For the people that were there, how was this in person? Would y’all want it as a new tradition? “We Are the Boys” is old as frick.

It was absolutely incredible. Gave me chills.

I like We Are the Boys and following it with that. I am 100% for it being tradition.
