From UVa Today:

"We've had an observation that very likely is the Higgs," said University of Virginia physicist Brad Cox in the College of Arts & Sciences, who has been involved with the Higgs search at the Large Hadron Collider. "With more experimentation and analysis, we are within reach, possibly by the end of the year, of confirming that the particle that we have seen is the Higgs. If so, this will be one of the major findings in physics in half a century."
