Let the preseason honors begin for Temple.

Five Owls were named to Phil Steele’s preseason all-Big East Conference teams.

The versatile Matt Brown was selected in three different positions.

As a punt returner, the senior joins junior defensive tackle Levi Brown on the all-conference second team.  Matt Brown was a third-team pick at running back and fourth-team kickoff returner.

Temple opens the season against Villanova on Aug. 31 in the Mayor’s Cup at Lincoln Financial Field.
