The Fred Biletnikoff Award has been presented since 1994 to America's top college football wide receiver by the TQC Foundation, Inc. (The Tallahassee Quarterback Club Foundation, Inc.), an independent not-for-profit organization which created the award in 1994 and has sponsored it since. It is named in honor of Fred Biletnikoff, who starred at Tech Memorial High School in Erie, Pennsylvania, then Florida State University before going on to a Hall of Fame career with the Oakland Raiders.

A national selection committee consisting of over 150 journalists, commentators, broadcasters, and former players selects the award winner. No member of the board of trustees of the foundation has a vote.

Any college player who receives the football through the forward pass is eligible (wide receiver, running back, tight end) to be selected as the award winner, although every winner since 1994 has been a wide receiver.
