Although UConn lost Saturday’s game against Rutgers in heart-breaking fashion, the game will be remembered for much more than the final score of 28-24.  UConn and its fans paid tribute to Jasper Howard.  Howard’s number 6 was displayed throughout the stadium, on t-shirts, buttons, wristbands and signs.  An image of Howard graced the game program.  A touching pregame ceremony left some fans in our section in tears.  Near the close of the ceremony the sun broke through a grey sky and shined brightly.  Perhaps fittingly, Tim Brown, the Rutgers player that scored the game-winning touchdown for the Scarlet Knights was Howard’s best friend from Miami.

Here are a few images captured from Section 131:
