Summary: Three University of Minnesota Football players suspected of rape had their bail set to $100,000 Sunday.
Both leads from each article utilized the same concise, hard news leads, and stated that the three players were still awaiting formal charges. The body of both articles also employed a pyramid style structure.
I thought that the Pioneer Press article was ultimately stronger, because it placed information such as, "The reported rape occurred sometime between 10:30 p.m. Tuesday and 9 a.m. Wednesday, according to a police report, though it wasn't immediately clear where," higher in the article than their Minneapolis peer. Since many of the details surrounding the rape case are still foggy, the placing of the limited factual information on-hand towards the beginning of the Press article gave it the upper hand.
