We combine the results of searches for the standard model (SM) Higgs boson based on the full CDF Run II data set obtained from √s=1.96 TeV pp̅ collisions at the Fermilab Tevatron corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 9.45 fb[superscript -1]. The searches are conducted for Higgs bosons that are produced in association with a W or Z boson, have masses in the range 90–150 GeV/c[superscript 2], and decay into bb̅ pairs. An excess of data is present that is inconsistent with the background prediction at the level of 2.5 standard deviations (the most significant local excess is 2.7 standard deviations).
