    UCONN Player Killed After Game

    STORRS, Conn. (AP)â€â€ÂA University of Connecticut football player died Sunday following an on-campus stabbing, hours after the team’s victory over Louisville.

    Twenty-year-old Jasper Howard of Miami, a junior and starting cornerback, was stabbed during a fight early Sunday. A message posted on the university’s Web site said the fight and stabbing happened near Hillside Road, which is near the center of the Storrs campus. The perpetrator was still at large.

    University president Michael Hogan told The Associated Press that the stabbing is a tragedy for the entire university community. He says state police are working with campus police.

    A message with UConn police was not immediately returned.

    Howard was credited with 11 tackles, a forced fumble and a fumble recovery in UConn’s 38-25 victory Saturday over Louisville. He led the Big East in punt returns last season.
