Freshman Ben Turk and senior Eric Maust will battle this week for the punting duties against Washington State on Saturday in San Antonio.
Turk took over at punter against Washington on Oct. 3 and has been the punter the last three games with mixed results. The freshman has averaged 35.7 yards.
Maust was the punter in the first four games, averaging 39.8 yards.
Turk had an up-and-down day against Boston College last Saturday. He had punts of 32, 31, 38, 32, 30 and 33 yards, giving the Eagles the ball on their 42, on their 31, on their 9, on Notre Dame's 40, on their 31 and on their 32.
Weis said it was a tricky situation to take the job away from Turk to go back to the veteran, calling the decision a Catch-22.
"In reality, you worry about the psyche of a young guy, but the bottom line is you have to worry about the team first more than the psyche of the young guy," Weis said.
No matter who wins out in practice this week, the punter should have a little easier time punting with the game being played in the Alamo Dome.
"Obviously, you'll have perfect conditions this week because you are punting indoors," Weis said. "You take the weather factor out of the game. Where you don't have to worry about playing on a perfect surface, it's not going to be slippery and those things.
"Still this week, they will both have an opportunity to punt. Whoever punts the best, that's who will punt."
