I would stick with CS if that's what you enjoy the most so you can have the luxury of learning the physics while sticking to the major you want.
CS here is pretty narrowed as far as physics, we only have to take Newtonian Mechanics, A Survey of Gravitation, Thermo, Waves, and Oscillations, and Electromagnetism. Math here is also pretty condensed, stopping after Linear Algebra or DiffEq.
