A school record eight defensive players were named All-MAC, including five on the first team. Sophomore Adrian Robinson earned 2009 MAC Defensive Player of the Year accolades, and senior Andre Neblett became Temple’s first three-time All-MAC honoree. In 2008, D'Onofrio's defense helped Temple to the team's most wins most since 1990 and a second-place finish in the MAC East. Facing five opponents that went on to postseason play, the Owls persevered to new heights, led by All-MAC honorees senior DT Terrance Knighton, Temple's first First-Team selection, and DT Andre Neblett. During its inaugural season of Mid-American Conference play, D'Onofrio guided the Temple defense to new heights. TU led the MAC in five defensive statistical categories, including red zone defense which also ranked first nationally. Toting the No. 1 defense in the MAC, DT Andre Neblett and DB Dominique Harris earned All-MAC honors as sophomores in 2007. "
