Have you thought about planting winter peas? They might get you some cover before winter, not take so much moisture through winter, and then you'd have some flexibility in the spring on when to terminate them. They might fix a little N for you too. Johnston Seed in Enid has both Austrian and Frostmaster winter peas. Definitely not the cheapest cover crop you could plant, though.
My Grandpa used to farm east of Alva, and every year he would rotate a little ground out of wheat and plant winter peas. In the spring he'd disc them in before they set blooms. Worked really well for him, maybe something that could work for you too.
