Michigan is playing Iowa on the road on Saturday night. That means it has to use Kinnick Stadium's infamous pink visitor's locker room.

No problem, Michigan just did a little redecorating to make it feel a little more like home.

Former Iowa head football coach Hayden Fry was responsible for originally painting the locker room pink sometime in the 80s. It supposedly done as a psychological ploy to make the Hawkeyes' opponents more "passive." It's faced criticism due to alleged homophobic connotations.

Michigan (9-0) vs. Iowa (5-4) kicks off at 8:00 PM ET on ABC.
