University of Connecticut football player has died following an on-campus stabbing, hours after the team's victory over Louisville.

According to the Hartford Courant, which first reported the story, Howard was stabbed after a fight broke out shortly after midnight near the campus' student union center.

The 20-year-old was stabbed during a fight early today. The starting cornerback led the Big East in punt returns last season.

Jasper Howard’s perpetrator has not yet been caught, according to an emergency alert posted on the University's website Sunday morning.
