Of a stab wound inflicted during a fight outside an on-campus party, Connecticut cornerback Jasper Howard, 20. The incident occurred early Sunday following a school-sponsored dance, hours after Howard had 11 tackles and recovered a fumble in the Huskies' 38--25 win over Louisville. Last year Howard, a junior from Miami, was second in the Big East in punt returns and led UConn with four interceptions. As of Monday no arrests had been made. "I know this," said Connecticut coach Randy Edsall, "he loved UConn, he loved his teammates, he loved everything about this."
At age 76, longtime pro wrestler and manager Lou Albano (below). Captain Lou spearheaded the so-called rock 'n' wrestling phenomenon in the 1980s, when pro wrestling enjoyed its broadest crossover success. Sporting a goatee bound by rubber bands, Albano was one of the World Wrestling Federation's most recognizable characters. He managed 15 tag-team champions and appeared in several TV shows and music videos—most notably Cyndi Lauper's 1984 chart-topping Girls Just Want to Have Fun, which led to Lauper's managing a female wrestler in a match aired live on MTV.
