Fans tailgating in a party bus

CFP National Championship Tailgating in Phoenix!

The CFP National Championship will be held in Glendale, AZ Monday, Jan. 11, 2016. We are excited to be hosting such an important game.

Mirage Limousines has some of the best party buses in the state. Tailgating in a party bus is an amazing experience that you just have to try for yourself. Our largest party bus will hold up to 65 people. Imagine celebrating the CFP National Championship with 64 of your closest friends.

More about that later. This blog recaps the bowl games and gives you an idea of what to expect from the upcoming championship game.

If you don’t have your tickets get them here: CFP National Championship Tickets

Activities are planned all over the Phoenix metro area. This previous blog post highlights the CFP National Championship festivities. If you haven’t read it, please check it out. It provides details about fireworks displays and live concerts and more. All to celebrate this big event in college football. Check it out here.



Clemson vs Alabama National Championship

Clemson and Alabama

The teams for the championship games have been decided. Playoff games were held on New Year’s Eve.

Clemson crushed Oklahoma and Alabama beat up Michigan State. Sadly the Cotton Bowl, with Alabama and Michigan State, was a blow out. Those are never fun to watch, unless your team is winning. However that does not necessarily reflect on the championship. Clemson is not expected to fold like Michigan State did in their bowl game.

With the play offs as any indicator, the championship game is going to be exciting. The bowl games were both high scoring games, both of the winning teams scored numerous times in their playoff bouts. Expect a championship filled with continuous drives for the goal.

Alabama is favored but Clemson’s not out of it yet. Take a look at some of the bowl game highlights. If they are any indication this CFP National Championship is going to rock!



ORANGE-BOWL-OKLAHOMA-VS-CLEMSON

The Orange Bowl Recap

The Orange Bowl pitted No. 1 Clemson against No. 4 Oklahoma. Clemson won it 37-17 turning in a performance that dominated on both sides of the ball.

Although Clemson was trailing 17-16 at halftime, the Tigers outscored Oklahoma 21-0 in the second half. The Sooners only rushed for 67 yards, or 2.03 yards on average. The Sooners also spent much of the second half limping off or being helped off the field.

The players to watch in the upcoming championship include Clemson’s quarterback, Deshaun Watson, running back Wayne Gallman and  defensive end Shaq Lawson.

Watson, a Heisman nominee this year, was responsible for some big plays in the Orange Bowl. Although he was not precise, his running and passing proved too much for Oklahoma.

Sophomore running back Wayne Gallman made a fine showing at the Orange Bowl. Expect more of the same during the championship game. His running played a part in wearing Oklahoma down.

Clemson All-American defensive end Shaq Lawson was missing from the Orange Bowl after suffering a left knee injury in the Tigers’ semifinal win over Oklahoma. He is expected to play in the College Football Playoff National Championship and is weapon to be watched.

Keep an eye out for a little trickery. Clemson Tigers punter Andy Teasdall is gaining quite a reputation for faking punts. It didn’t go so well against North Carolina in the ACC Championship. Coming up short he gave North Carolina the opportunity to pull ahead. He also opened his self up to a calling out on camera from Clemson coach Dabo Swinney that has since gone viral.

However, Teasdall was able to redeem himself at the Orange Bowl. Early in the second quarter, on fourth-and-4 from the Oklahoma 44, the Tigers faked a punt.This time the fake punt worked and Teasdall is a hero.

If all that does not make you want to watch this championship game then read on. We haven’t even discussed the CFP National Championship’s favored team, Alabama.

Clemson will face Alabama, the winner of the Cotton Bowl semifinal, at the CFP National Championship on Jan. 11 in Glendale, Ariz.

cotton-bowl-michigan-state-vs-alabama

Cotton Bowl Recap

The Cotton Bowl was a contest between No. 2 seed Alabama and No. 3 seed Michigan State. Alabama won 38-0.

If the championship is anything like the Cotton Bowl, Alabama quarterback, Jake Coker, will be exciting to watch.  For his Cotton Bowl performance he completed 25 of 30 passes. He threw for 286 yards and for two touchdowns.

Coker and his receiver Calvin Ridley practically created their own highlight reel at the Cotton Bowl. Responsible for a couple of amazingly long plays. One of which that may be considered the best touchdown catch of the season was counted thanks to an overturned review.

This Alabama team promises excitement. If the Coker-Ridley connection remains strong then Alabama’s offense will be terrifying in the championship game. This Alabama offense was unstoppable in the Cotton Bowl, even against a very good defense.

The Crimson Tide also tallied four sacks in the Cotton Bowl. They bullied Michigan State’s quarterback and offensive line. They set the tone up front, exactly what they’ve done to opponents all year.

Expect more of the same as Alabama takes on Clemson at the CFP National Championship on Jan. 11 in Glendale, Ariz.

2016-national-championship

Alabama-Clemson CFP National Championship Predictions

Alabama is favored but Clemson’s not out of it yet. Consider these tantalizing items.

Clemson’s head coach Dabo Swinney said he used Alabama as a template when developing his own defensive line.  Coincidentally Alabama is Swinney’s alma mater. Having earned a football scholarship to Alabama, he played when Alabama was the 1992 national champions. He also earned a degree in commerce and business administration. That said, Swinney has the experience to dissect the Alabama team. Just what Clemson needs.

Plus, Tigers quarterback and Heisman Trophy finalist Deshaun Watson is a great talent with big-play tendencies. Just the type of quarterback that has been beating Alabama in recent years. Watson is more than capable of putting points on the board in the passing game, should Alabama shut down Clemson’s rushing attack.

So don’t call this game over before it has even begun. Instead, brace yourself for the game of the year!

Super Bowl Teams are Set – Are You?

Book Your Ride to Super Bowl

Super Bowl XLIX is coming to Glendale, Arizona on Sunday, February 1, 2015. The teams are set. Are you set?  Got a ride to Super Bowl? If you plan to attend, you deserve to arrive in style.

The Seattle Sea Hawks and the New England Patriots will be taking over the University of Phoenix stadium in just a few days from now. We at Mirage Limousines are excited.

This year’s Super Bowl may become known as the “Deflate-gate” Super Bowl. At least the play offs leading up to the big game may be characterized as such. It’s sure better than the Mass Transit Super Bowl that occurred last year.

Perhaps you have heard the controversy. Apparently the Patriots deflated their game balls. This made them easier to catch in the rain last weekend. The game was a blow out. Its hard to say the deflated balls made that much difference. What do you think? Find us on social media and share your thoughts. We would love to hear from you.

And let Mirage Limousines be your ride to the Super Bowl. We have many luxury transportation options available, choose from: a limo, a party bus or even a standard sized luxury vehicle like an Escalade or Mercedes.


Mirage Limousines, the Leading Limo Service Provider in Phoenix, AZ

If you are looking to book a ride to the Super Bowl, you have come to the right place. Mirage Limousines is the leader in limo service in Phoenix, AZ. Its our attention to detail that has allowed us to succeed all these years.

 Super Bowl Transportation Snafus

Getting to the Super Bowl can be a huge fan headache. Packed parking lots, long lines of traffic, it can wear you out before you even get in to see the game. Imagine yourself at last year’s big game.

Mass Transit Super Bowl

Last year was billed as the Mass Transit Super Bowl. The first Super Bowl in which two US states (New York and New Jersey) hosted the event. Fans were encouraged to use the elaborate public transportation system available there.

Mistaken estimates of rail ridership by the NFL led to over-crowding and delays. Approximately 28,000 people took the shuttle and were faced with waits of up to 90 minutes. After the game ended, fans were asked to remain inside the stadium until more trains were dispatched to load passengers from the station.

Hopefully, this won’t happen this year. There just  isn’t a lot of public transportation that even goes to the University of Phoenix Stadium. So if you want to go to the game, you are probably going to have to drive or hire a driver.

Of course, we recommend you book a driver. And who better to book from than the oldest and largest limo service, party bus rental, car service provider? Don’t sweat the preliminaries, like traffic and parking. Save your energy for the big game.


Super Bowl Details

University of Phoenix Stadium-with the grass out

Courtesy of Az Republic

The big game is Sunday, February 1st. It will be held at the University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale Arizona, a suburb of Phoenix. The stadium, home of the Arizona Cardinals, is a state of the art facility, modern, built in 2006, with a retractable roof and a grass field that rolls out of the building into the sun.

Kickoff is scheduled for 4:30pm Phoenix time (6:30pm Eastern time). This will be the second Super Bowl played in that stadium, and the third one held in the Phoenix metropolitan area.


University of Phoenix Stadium Parking

If you are dead set on driving yourself to the game don’t forget a parking permit. Parking permits are required to attend NFL events, and only ticketholders are allowed to purchase parking permits.

Attendees of the 2015 NFL Pro Bowl and/or Super Bowl XLIX should visit superbowl.clickandpark.com prior to attending to purchase a parking permit for each game.

This is the Overall Parking Lot Map. Use it when buying a parking pass. This way you will know which lot you are buying a pass for.


Public Transportation

Mirage Limousines wants to be your transportation provider for the big game. However, we also want to be your source for valuable event information for this and any other major event in the state. As such we are providing information on public transit. But we hope you don’t use it and call us instead.

Earlier in this post we mentioned that there isn’t much public transportation out to the big game. While true, there is a limited amount of public transportation. So here it is.

Public transportation in Phoenix is called Valley Metro. They have put together a package of information for the big game. You can plan ahead for your long bus ride by visiting valleymetro.org/superbowl.

Valley Metro recommends allowing extra time to get to your destination, since many other fans will be joining you on your transit trip. Remember last year’s Mass Transit Super Bowl. Super fail.

They also suggest that you pack lightly. Security will be tight. They request that you not bring coolers and/or other large items on bus or rail. You can click here for a full list of prohibited items.

Additional bus service will be provided in Glendale on Pro Bowl and Super Bowl game days. Visit: http://www.valleymetrosb.com/game-days/ for more details.


 Mirage Limousines Super Bowl Transportation

So now you have the whole picture of the different ways you can get to the Super Bowl this year. You can take a chance that there will be another mass transit snafu like last year. You could fight the traffic and parking lot, buy a pass and simply lose your mind trying to park before the game even starts.

Mirage Limousines Hummer Limo-White

Or you can avoid the traffic hassles and parking nightmares. Take no chances on public transit. Get yourself a driver. You earned it. Want a Rolls Royce limo? We have that. What about a Hummer limo? Got that too.

Plus we have parking passes. The venue provided a limited number of limo parking passes and we got ’em. Not too many mind you, so get here quick.

Visit our fleet page to see all of our luxury vehicles. Or the limo page if you are only interested in a limo. Or the party bus page if you’d like a party bus for the Super Bowl. Pretty much if you want it, we got it. Just for you.

The 44th Annual VIZIO Fiesta Bowl will be held at the University of Phoenix Stadium, in Glendale, Arizona on Wednesday, December 31, at 2:00 PM.

The teams are the No. 20 Boise State Broncos and the No. 10 Arizona Wildcats. This year Boise State went 11-1. Arizona Wildcats had an overall record of 10-3 and a Pac-12 record of 7-2.

The game should be an exciting one even though neither team has any hope of being in the playoffs.

Brian Pedersen , of the Bleacher Report thinks this game will be, “…the most exciting and enjoyable non-playoff matchup of the postseason.” And Bill Connelly of SB Nation, has ranked this Arizona-Boise State showdown as “…the fourth-best bowl in terms of excitement and No. 8 overall in how watchable it will be.”

Super Bowl Events:

  • 100 days before the big event there was an event to celebrate the $600,000 in Super Bowl grant money that was awarded to Phoenix charities. Called the “100 Day Countdown” it was like a pep rally. It was held at a local elementary school in Phoenix. Those kids must have been thrilled to get out of class that day.

  • 49 days before the big game there will be a 4.9 kilometer “fun run” at RAWHIDE. This is a family fun event with activities for the kids, food, drinks, and music. Rawhide is a Phoenix treasure and if you haven’t been there you should definitely check this out. It is modeled after an old ghost town from the wild west and just a fun time for all.
  • Right now there is a huge football in the center of downtown. If you haven’t been to see it,plan on it. Downtown Phoenix is an eclectic mix of art and food. Always something to see there. Now you can add a 20 foot high football. More than 32 feet around, it weighs more than  7,000 pounds.
