Stanford junior Keller Chryst will make his first collegiate start at quarterback at Arizona on Saturday, Coach David Shaw said. 

He’ll replace senior Ryan Burns, after the Cardinal went 4-3 (2-3 Pac-12) in his seven starts. Burns completed nearly 63% of his passes for 1,058 yards and five touchdowns. He also threw seven interceptions. 

Burns led the Cardinal to wins over Kansas State, USC and UCLA to open the season but Stanford has struggled since, averaging 11 points in its last four games, punctuated by Saturday’s 10-5 loss to Colorado.

Stanford ranks last in the Pac-12 in scoring (17.0) and total offense (299.1). The offense has scored 10 touchdowns all year.
