The federal government can send in the military. In 1963 the Alabama National Guard was federalized to ensure desegragation at the University of Alabama.

If it is not a federal law then there are other ways the federal government can apply pressure to the state law. For example states have the right to determine the drinking age; however, as part of a road funding act the federal government can withhold money for roads in states were the drinking age is not twenty-one.
