The Arizona Cardinals cheerleaders have prepared dance routines to five new songs, adjusted their beauty regimen to a humid climate and traveled to Florida for their biggest game yet, Super Bowl XLIII in Tampa on Sunday, the Arizona Republic reports.

The 28-member team, made up of women who work as engineers, mothers, teachers and students off the field, toured Raymond James Stadium on Friday to see where they would be performing.

Team captain Marcie (whose last name the Cardinals will not release for security purposes), an electrical engineer, told the Arizona Republic that the whole team is thrilled to be part of the Cardinals' first trip to the Super Bowl.

"It's almost overwhelming," she told the Republic. "We're just so proud to be part of this."

The team had only two weeks to adapt their best routines to songs chosen by the NFL such as No Doubt's "Hey Baby" and the Beatles' "I Saw Her Standing There."
