Description

We present searches for the standard model Higgs boson produced via the VH->VWW->leptons+X process at a center-of-mass energy of 1.96 TeV with the CDF and D0 detectors at the Fermilab Tevatron Collider. We require either two like charge-signed leptons (electron or muon) or three charged leptons (electron or muon). These channels provide significant sensitivity in the intermediate Higgs boson mass range. Inclusion of data up to 7.3 inverse fb and recent improvements to the sensitivity will be discussed.
