There's some interesting nuance to Stanford's QB situation. David Shaw named Ryan Burns the starter, but he also said that Keller Chryst will get playing time against Kansas State. This differs from the Cardinal's last QB transition in 2012. That year, Shaw tapped Josh Nunes as the exclusive guy at the start of the season. Eventual starter Kevin Hogan did not begin seeing playing time until later in the year.
