Does this look like cut worm damage?

Something is attacking my corn. Yesterday morning, one little plant was cut off at the base - just laying there, uneaten. Today, 10 or so more have been cut off. I have never dealt with cutworms - seems odd that they would have been dormant in soil where no weeds have grown in years, totally covered in pine straw. But I don't know what else it could be.
