The highlight of the Gators' 17-16 Homecoming loss to LSU Saturday might have been the tribute to Gainesville native Tom Petty.

After the band played "We are the Old Boys from Old Florida", fans sang along to Petty's "I Won't Back Down" as it blasted on the loud speaker.

The moment happened despite the LSU band's attempt to play over it.
