Five-year-old Linden Wadsworth of Evanston. She won a year’s supply of Andy’s Frozen Custard concretes and a Coach Patrick Fitzgerald autographed football for coming up with the best guess of Northwestern University’s total rushing yards in the team’s winning appearance in the Gator Bowl.

Linden’s guess  was only 14 yards off from the actual total of 161.

Northwestern University mascot, Willie the Wildcat, sat down for a sundae with Linden at the Andy’s shop in downtown Evanston on Saturday. Andy’s is the presenting sponsor for Willie’s Kids’ Club.
