 Description We present searches for the Standard Model Higgs boson produced in association with a top quark pair in 5 fb^-1 of 7 TeV $pp$ collision data from CMS and ATLAS. We look for events where the Higgs boson decays to $b\bar{b}$ and the top quark pair decays to either lepton plus jets ($t\bar{t} \rightarrow \ell\nu jjb\bar{b}$) or dileptons ($t\bar{t} \rightarrow \ell \nu \ell \nu b\bar{b}$), where $\ell$ is an electron or muon. We will compare and contrast in detail the methods used and results obtained by the two collaborations.  Material:
