Tuskers is a sci-fi comedy. The main story takes place in 2099; the University of Nebraska football team has not lost a game in ten years, although to finish a perfect decade, they must win one last game, with the hated University of Oklahoma Sooners. One of the main characters is a woolly mammoth, resurrected from a frozen specimen by the molecular biologists at the Nebraska Beef Lab. The evil genius, and richest man in the world, is Arly Hockrood, chemical engineer who developed Hockrood Hybrid Corn, a drought and heat-loving perennial plant from which rice and petroleum are now made and exported from Nebraska throughout the world. Hockrood hates the Nebraska football because of the way his grandfather, a can collector street person on campus, was treated years ago, and is determined to do everything he can to make NU lose this game. Unlikely heroines and heroes in this classic matchup between college football powers include Suzie, a college student, Tech, a Beef Lab staff, and members of the marching band, especially Charlie Robbins a tuba player.
