Abstract : A first search is reported for a standard model Higgs boson (H) that is produced through vector boson fusion and decays to a bottom-quark pair. Two data samples, corresponding to integrated luminosities of 19.8 inverse femtobarns and 18.3 inverse femtobarns of proton-proton collisions at sqrt(s)=8 TeV were selected for this channel at the CERN LHC. The observed significance in these data samples for a H to b bbar signal at a mass of 125 GeV is 2.2 standard deviations, whilst the expected significance is 0.8 standard deviations. The fitted signal strength mu=sigma/sigma[SM]=2.8 + 1.6 - 1.4. The combination of this result with other CMS searches for the Higgs boson decaying to a b-quark pair, yields a signal strength of 1.0 +/- 0.4, corresponding to a signal significance of 2.6 standard deviations for a Higgs boson mass of 125 GeV.
